This film compares the varying fortunes of one of Britain's most iconic tourist destinations with those of Tobago in the Caribbean. The film explores Blackpool before the railway age, Blackpool in its heyday, the decline of Blackpool's tourism trade and possible futures for the town. Supported by maps, archive footage and interviews, the film challenges students to think about the concept of tourism and incorporates suggestions for sustainable development of smaller tourist destinations - an alternative to the boom 'n' bust of large scale tourism developments.
