1953 – a lesson that needs memorising

A 1977 Anglia TV documentary depicting the damage and destruction wrought by 1953 North Sea Flood when the sea broke through the ailing defences at Sea Palling in Norfolk can be seen on the East Anglian Film Archive.

It shows the aftermath and interviews some of the survivors telling a lesson our authorities with the responsibility for coastal protection should heed.
