The British Film Institute collects, preserves, and restores film and TV material. There is a forty minute film of the celebrations in Salisbury, in 1927, to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the founding of New Sarum is a stunning example of what they do.

The quality is outstanding and everything we see is, in some ways, so familiar, even though we are looking at something from nearly one hundred years ago. If you knew any of those people, you would recognise them! Watch out for Hob Nob and the Giant (in the rain!) in a rather good procession through the Market Square.
