This really is a 'wonderful piece of history' and shows the infrastructure of the Broads (particularly around Yarmouth) much as Ransome would have seen it prior to WWII. My only slightly critical comment is that motor boats (albeit wooden ones!) dominate.
So to redress the balance, here is another Broads film, this time made in 1948 when petrol was in short supply, with lots of sailing boats and some would-be Dick and Dorotheas learning to sail.
