Intro to A Very British Holiday
When money is tight and budgets are cut, the public return in droves to the most traditional of all holiday destinations: the British campsite.
Philippa Robinson's film is pitched in the midst of one of Britain's busiest camping destinations- Whitecliff Bay on the Isle of Wight.
It follows family barbecues and campsite entertainment shows, as well as joining a group of junior campers who are being schooled in self-sufficiency and independence by the the 2nd Enfield Boys Brigade. As the summer unfolds with water fights, a fishing expedition and a best hat competition, the tents and caravans reveal a world which offers many a week's refuge from the pressures and stresses of inner city Britain.
