Working at Pontinental

Reel History goes to Bristol airport to look back to the 1970s, when package holidays really took off and millions of British holidaymakers headed abroad.

Former Pontins entertainer, Paul James remember when this most British of holiday chains first set up camp in the Mediterranean. Jean Pitt and Jane Hosegood tell us what it was like being some of Bristol airport's first package holiday reps. And Stephen Manley-Clarke will recount how his passion for air travel, beginning with his first package holiday, led to a life spent in the air.
