The BBC iPlayer currently is currently showing a programme in the Bird's Eye View series, made in the late 1960s, in which Sir John Betjeman narrates a 50 minute helicopter trip over the south coast.

There is lots of railway interest including a brief shot of a freight train on the Weymouth tramway, the monorail at Butlins Minehead, one of the cliff lifts at Bournemouth, a narrow gauge steam line I cannot place, and lots more.
