Cromer in the Second World War

Memories and archive footage, with a talk by the publisher 

Poppyland Publishing, UK, 70 mins.

The film illustrates the wartime years through contemporary photographs and film, and features modern footage of local sites and the recollections of those who lived in or visited the town. One visitor was Flight Sergeant Jim Flint who, when piloting his damaged aircraft back across the North Sea, realised he could not climb over the cliffs at Cromer and ditched into the sea. Another is renowned American radio journalist Norman Corwin, who came to investigate the effect of enemy bombing on this small community.
