    "In the breezy Bristol Channel, 12 miles from land, stands Lundy, rugged and grim."

    High angle shot of waves crashing against rocks. Intertitle speaks of shipwrecks. High angle shot of part of a shipwreck being lashed by the waves. Various views of Lundy's rugged cliffs. Intertitle states that the Victoria Embankment was made from granite from these shores. Waves crash against the shore.

    "Lundy has much to commend it - there are only 16 inhabitants, no 'flu, no taxes, and one tavern (open all day!). And bays and coves galore - " Sunlight on the sea. Various landscape shots of cliffs and sea. A couple sit on a hillside looking at the view. No shots of houses or the tavern - just views.
