This film was commissioned by the University of Essex to promote the campus out of term time as an ideal base from where tourists could easily explore the county and the nearby attractions on offer. Well positioned for the coast, Constable Country in Dedham Vale and the historic town of Colchester with its Castle, Tattoo and Zoo - it seemed like a good idea.

From "how to get there" to suggestions of the wonderful places to visit in the area, this is a great promotion not only for prospective tourists but also any students considering the Essex campus for their studies.
