Is great to see a video of Brixham harbour during World War II. Not sure where the boys were being taught, probably above one of the shops opposite the old fish market. At the end of the video you see fishermen walking into a pub, I think this is probably the Sprat and mackerel

These are some extremely corny Christmas videos.

My God didn't they make some crap music videos in the 1980s :-) :-)

If you think the official video is bad enough then check out their appearance on top of the Pops, truly painful to watch.

That Summer starred a 21-year-old Ray Winstone and was released in 1979. The film follows Steve Brodie, a teenager just out of youth hostel. Disillusioned with his life in London he decides to head to Torquay to try and win a swimming race.
The majority of the film was made on location in and around Torquay Devon. Film locations include Torquay seafront, the old arcades, the Pickwick pub, the Imperial hotel and various outside locations which locals will definitely recognise whilst watching the film.
Locals to Torbay should spot various continuity errors including Angie supposedly running to work at the Imperial hotel, but actually running towards Paignton instead. One of my favourite continuity errors is when Steve is getting ready to go down to the beach for a swim. He's getting dressed in the morning whilst looking out the window at a lovely view of Torquay Harbour. What most people didn't know is you couldn't see Torquay Harbour from the Pickwick.
Even if you don't really care for the film itself the soundtrack is absolutely fabulous.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the film as much as I have over the last 26 years since I first saw it in 1987.
