Updated St Ives video of the major tourist areas/attractions

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsQn0sAn9oI

This is an update of the video made last year, with additional material (the town's Titanic victims (and survivors), Kidz R Us theatre, the Leach Pottery, Alfred Wallis, the library and the Court Cocking inferno).

For potential tourists it shows all the major areas of the town and in the first few seconds has a superb aerial shot of the town showing the relative positions of the 3 main bathing beaches and the harbour. The walking distance between Porthminster and Porthmeor beaches is about 500-600 yards. The distance from the town centre to Higher Stennack is about 2/3 of a mile (uphill).

Due to its length and for ease of navigation, this 'index' marks the start point of various featured items :

0.34 The importance of the Parish church

1.39 The harbour/fishing industry

4.50 The Court Cocking Inferno

5.24 Wesleyan Chapel/Kidz R Us Theatre

6.25 Lifeboats and Lifeboatmen

8.35 Porthminster Beach

11.41 HMS Wave/St Ives Arts Club

12.20 In and around the town centre

14.17 The War Memorial

14.56 In and around 'Downalong'

15.40 Alfred Wallis

16.19 The Leach Pottery at Higher Stennack

17.03 Titanic disaster

18.16 Porthmeor Beach/The Island

19.00 The wreck of SS Alba

20.25 Acknowledgements

Absolutely superb! Makes me even more eager to visit St Ives (which I will do in July).
