  • Gypsy Artists (1956)

    Artists Sven and Juanita Berlin work on their paintings beside their caravan in the New Forest. New Forest, Hampshire. L/S of a gypsy caravan in a clearing; Sven Berlin is sawing wood outside and a goat snuffles about the ground. M/S and C/U of Sven sawing; his wife Juanita sits by a camp fire peeling potatoes; their small son, Jasper, feeds something to the goat; a black kettle hangs over the fire. Commentator tells us the couple are successful artists who live as gypsies in a horse-drawn caravan. Sven adds some more wood to the fire; Juanita hangs a pot with the potatoes in it over the fire, then walks over to an armchair beside the caravan. She changes her long orange coat for an old black one and puts on a slouch hat, then sits on the chair to take up her position for a portrait Sven is painting. Commentator talks of how the couple came to this lifestyle: "Civilisation, they felt, hemmed them in... pushed them around". Sven adjusts her hat then carries on working on the painting - it's quite bohemian. While posing, Juanita works on her painting of horses. M/S as she picks up her palette and takes her paints and canvas over to a tree; sitting there to paint the horses in more detail. We see some lovely New Forest ponies eating hay as she works. C/U of two of the horses with lovely long hair! Note: On file is a news cutting from the Southern Daily Echo about the Berlins and their way of life

  • Out Of Town: New Forest Point To Point (1979) with Jack Hargreaves

    🎬Jack Hargreaves and Stan Bréhaut came over to the New Forest on 26th December 1979 to follow the annual Point To Point race across the Forest.

    🎬August 1975 marked the 40th anniversary of the opening of the M27 motorway. Paul Clifton looks back at the sometimes dramatic life of the road.

  • Pine Marten Now in the New Forest (2018)

    🎬Pine martens are extremely rare in Britain. But, this is the second time anyone has filmed a sighting in the New Forest - with one first caught on camera in 2016.

    The mammals are elusive members of the weasel family. Experts say pine martens were widespread throughout the country but their numbers began declining in the south around 200 years ago due to habitat loss and predator control measures.
