This DVD is an account of the historic total solar eclipse over Cornwall on Wednesday 11th August 1999.


It was the first total solar eclipse to occur over Cornwall since 22nd May 1724. Another will not happen here for 600 years!


We captured stunning vision of the eclipse despite the initially poor weather of Wednesday 11th August 1999. Cameramen were on land and out to sea to capture the whole event and back up cameras were set at far-flung locations to ensure that nothing was missed.


We take you through eclipse week as it unfolded leading up to the simply awe inspiring darkness of totality with its surreal atmosphere.


A record to treasure of this moment in time.


This is an archive DVD that we continue to sell because of its popularity.


This is a brand new shrink-wrapped DVD which we, as the copyright holder and producer of the DVD, duplicated and which we sell on our site.
