Thanet on Film

Thanet on Film Movie Poster

A compilation of Thanet on film from the 1920s to the present day, including unique black and white footage of Broadstairs in the years before the war. Quirky vintage films of Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs in the '50s and '60s capture the boom days of the holiday trade.

The Holiday Resort tells the inside stories of some of Thanet's most famous landmarks. Nazis in Margate shows residents battling racists on the sea front.

Spectacular shots of crowded beaches, Dreamland, Folk Week, the vanishing countryside, the views of visitors, local traders and residents - this offers a provocative insight into the changing face of life on the Isle.
