Text from producer: This superb DVD takes a fascinating look back at two centuries of life in Eastbourne. It tells the remarkable story of Eastbourne's growth from a collection on remote hamlets to a thriving metropolitan borough and its development as a fashionable Victorian holiday resort. It explores the origins of landmarks like the Wish Tower, and delves into the darker side of Eastbourne's heritage with tales of smugglers and shipwrecks. It charts the town's experienced during World War 2, when it was first considered safe enough to receive evacuees, but eventually earned the unenviable reputation as ?the most raided town in the south east. A wonderful collection of sketches and old photos throws light on the early years, and rare archive footage brings more recent times to life. Looking Back at Eastbourne is an entertaining dip into the town's past. It will appeal to anyone with an interest in its heritage, anyone who remembers the Eastbourne of old and anyone who wants to know the town better.
