About Hilsea Lido

At Wessex Film and Sound Archive (WFSA) you can see and hear history, from late Victorian times to the present day, through moving images and sound recordings. The Archive contains over 32,000 film and sound recordings relating to central southern England (including film and tapes of local TV and radio) now available to study and enjoy. They also have an 85 seat cinema for group viewing and listening.

The Hilsea Lido No Diving project is grateful to the support of the WFSA who have worked closely with the team to evaluate and catalogue all the contributions made by local people to the project archive. All of the material below is shown courtesy of WFSA including the archive clips shown in the BBC South Today news items below. Thanks to the support of the BBC the project has surpassed all expectations and we have been able to unearth some very rare cine footage going back as 1949.
