Though later in the text summary of this film it states that the pool scenes were filmed at the Saltdean Lido, we can confirm after checking old photos that it is the outdoor pool at Rottingdean. To view the film please follow the link below:

The EUscreen portal offers free online access to thousands of items of audiovisual heritage. It brings together clips that provide an insight into the social, cultural, political and economic events that have shaped the 20th and 21st centuries. As well as chronicling important historical events, the EUscreen portal allows you to explore television programmes that focus on everyday experience. EUscreen is also intended to be a resource for educators, researchers and media professionals searching for new audiovisual content from across Europe.
The EUscreen portal was built by a consortium of European audiovisual archives, public broadcasters, academic and technical partners. It has been funded by the European Commission. The EUscreen project ran from 2009 – 2012 under the FP7 programme. Its successor, EUscreenXL, began in 2013 and runs until 2016 under the CIP ICT-PSP support programme.
The main objective of the project is to aggregate a comprehensive amount of professional audiovisual content. A large number of clips and programmes have been selected by broadcasters and archives from all across Europe.
The aim is to engage people with audiovisual heritage content and facilitate the use of videos, photos, audio and images. In the EUscreen project, virtual exhibitions were created in oder to contextualize the collection items. The EUscreenXL project continues this work by further developing MyEUscreen.
