• Short Summary

    Lovely footage taken on a trip from Weymouth to Guernsey in the Channel Islands.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'GUERNSEY - Isle of Victor Hugo'.

    Guernsey, Channel Islands.

    Shots from a ship as we leave Weymouth in Dorset. Crowds of people watch from a jetty. Scenic views of the coastline and Portland Bill as we travel towards the Channel Islands.

    We pass Herm and Jethou Islands and then approach Guernsey. The ship arrives at St Peter's Port, the capital of the island.

    Shots of a statue on Guernsey of Victor Hugo, the 19th century French poet who lived here for 15 years while in exile from his own country. Shots of Castle Cornet and Fort George, the former defence against invaders. Street scenes in St Peter's Port.

    A new road leads away from the capital to the beautiful scenery of the island. People have fun in the surf at a lovely beach on the rocky coast. Shots of the sea and coastline as the sun goes down; a lighthouse is seen in the distance.
