Tyneham on Time is a video by Babette Weatherell on Level 5 BA (Hons) Film Production exploring the ghost village of Tyneham in Dorset
In 1943, the villagers of Tyneham were evacuated from their homes promising to return one day. Many have described the village of Tyneham as a “ghost town stuck in the past”.
This experimental documentary short was part of a project with the product aiming to explore “a sense of place” and intends to explore an alternative and perhaps more accurate reflection of the village’s personality using a variety of methods such as vocal reconstructions and prop design.
So what does it really mean for a place to be “frozen in time”?
