One of British Transport Films' relatively early travelogues, 'East Anglian Holiday' was shot in Technicolor. Its narration combines clipped patrician received pronunciation with occasional interludes delivered in a strong local accent.

In King's Lynn, the region's unique geology is commemorated in the architecture of the Guildhall, whose flints were originally sponges growing underwater. In Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, families enjoy a seaside holiday, rollerskating, riding boats and pedal cars, or watching Punch and Judy shows. Nearby, the local fishing industry is hard at work sorting the latest catches. Suffolk's coastline combines marshes with sandy beaches., and its distinguishing marks are Blythburgh Church, the Southwold lighthouse, and Henry II's Orford Castle.
