  • A HOME BY THE SEA (1962)

    🎬British Movietone - Quite rightly the people of Tristan da Cunha are to live near the sea. Overlooking Southampton Waters, their new homes are at the former RAF station at Calshot. Everything's been done to make them comfortable in what used to be married quarters, and even the larders were stocked!

  • A House In time (1997)

    🎬Building a Cob house in a day. Filmed on the Beaulieu Estate by Meridian Broadcasting.

    Imagine the year is 1650, a young couple, Jacob and Catherine are about to get married, but have nowhere to live together. Their respective houses are already over-crowded. Up to 10 or more people would live in a Cob house 25 feet long and 13 feet wide.

    Hence the practice of erecting a house in a single day by the whole village for the newly-weds. A communal venture. Once the house was completed, the householder would treat their guests to a party of eating, drinking and dancing.

    But how was it possible to build a house in a little over sixteen hours, and could it be re-attempted 350 years later? The following is an account of an incredible day and a brilliant group of volunteers who made it all possible.

    Our thanks to the staff at Meridian Broadcasting in Northam for their help in sourcing this film.
