The family video just over 20 minutes long was made by the family of Robert and Mark Morris and has just been donated to the North Walsham and District Community Archive.

The footage shows the sights of that town, as well as around Great Yarmouth, Cromer, Norwich, the Broads, and even the Bacton Gas Terminal when it was under construction.

Wayne Beauchamp, from the archive, said: "Roger Morris was the son of Joan Wright and Bob Morris and moved to Rhodesia in the late 1950s. "Bob Morris made the first part of the movie when holidaying back in the area in the early 1960s and his son Roger made the latter part on his return to the area in 1968.

"Joan Wright was the daughter of Jack & Elsie Wright who lived on Buxton Road in North Walsham."
