EVERY WEEK COME TUESDAY
Over the years the Isle of Wight has seen many changes, especially some of the town skylines that have changed beyond all reconition. Where we now shop for convenience food once stood a thriving cattle market, the bus station once resembled a bomb site, and cinemas have been converted into pubs and even shops. We quickly accept all these changes and forget what our surroundings once looked like. Our children take it for granted that all these buildings have been here since time began and accept them as part of their daily life. Do you remember when Newport had a Railway? Or when Steam trains ran to Ventnor, and Shanklin had a pier? “Every Week Come Tuesday” may jog you memory and help you recall lost buildings, places and faces of everyday Island life over the last fifty years, including the weekly Market held in South Street, Newport, and a journey by steam train from Ryde Pier Head to Ventnor in the late 60s, as well as a trip aboard the “Queen Mary” from Southampton to New York in 1965.

The first colour film was invented in 1911, but only wealthy amateur movie makers could afford to use it in those early days; for recording special family events such as birthdays, holidays and Christmas. It was not until the 1950s, when Kodak invented Kodachrome, that the ordinary man on the street was able to make colourful home movies. Unfortunately, early colour film was unstable and, unless stored correctly, would deteriorate and lose colour, as well as becoming brittle. The Image Films Archive contains many reels of colour home movies and with the aid of the latest digital processing has been able to restore some footage to its former glory. Ventnor beach in the 40s, the first Hovercraft service in 1962 at Appley, Sandown Zoo in the 70s, Snow on the Island in 1947 and West Wight in the 1950s are just some of the clips featured on this DVD. Join us on a journey around the Island of the past, over four decades, from the 1940s to the 1970s in colour.
