Weymouth and Portland has always been a popular spot for film makers and many films and TV shows have featured the resort over the years.
Back in the 1960’s one of the most talked about films of the era was filmed in the area and for much of the summer the crew were located in Weymouth.
John Schlesinger’s version of Thomas Hardy’s Far From The Madding Crowd was filmed mainly on location in Dorset in 1965. Starring Julie Christie, Terence Stamp, Alan Bates and Peter Finch. This short clip was filmed on Weymouth seafront.
There are others of course, and we’ll bring more to the site in due course. For now site back and enjoy the sight of Weymouth seafront as it was in Victorian times.
