Morecambe and Back...
contains all the Mitchell and Kenyon footage shot in Morecambe in 1902.
Two of the film clips, the exterior of the Winter Gardens and the congregation leaving the Parish Church are also available as ‘then and now’ parallel videos.
Another ‘raw’ resource is an online comparison of the front and back pages from1903 and 2008 editions of the ‘Morecambe Visitor’ newspaper.
The module also records the spectacular way Morecambe Bay Community Primary School used the footage as the base for a term-long cross-curricular theme covering; Music, Dance, Drama, History, Art, Geography and Speaking and Listening.
The project was supported by the British Film Institute, Lancashire Sinfonietta, Ludus Dance and the Lancashire Public Records office.
