Product description

Richard Wyatt and Polly Lloyd present this exclusive look back at the history of Bristol from the early days of Saxon settlement through to the spectacular celebrations as the city welcomed in the new millennium.

Featuring an incredible archive of rarely seen material, Richard and Polly uncover the magic of Bristol as never seen before. Archive footage includes the Prince of Wales cutting the first sod at Avonmouth Docks in 1902, King Edward VII officially opening Royal Edward Dock in 1908 and Jubilee celebrations from two different eras - George V in 1937 and Elizabeth II in 1977.

There are historic shots of the Brabazon and Concorde being built and then flown on their maiden voyages from Filton, dramatic colour footage of Bristol during the blitz and Churchill - cigar in mouth - inspecting the damage. Look out for pictures of the 1936 centenary of Bristol Zoo and the birth of the white tiger cubs in 1968 - the first to be born in Europe - plus memories of the return of the SS Great Britain, brought back from the Falklands to the city in which she was built.

Sporting highlights are featured too, City and Rovers, Bristol Rugby and Gloucestershire County cricket, plus other sports that made their mark - including the spectacle of powerboat racing in the docks.

The footage ends with the unforgettable millennium celebrations which heralded a new-look Bristol as ambitious development is changing the face of the city centre and its quayside.

This is a fabulous record of one of England's greatest cities.
