Front, The [documentary]

Sara Parker looks at the year-round story of the British seaside from both sides of the seafront.

As the July crowds cluster round the ice-cream sellers and the Kangaroo Man (stifling inside his suit), town hall officials desperately try to relaunch their Victorian summer venue as a cool place for cruising surfers.

In the dark winter months, part-time panto actors snatch quick fags in the drizzle and grim thoughts creep up on the regulars.
