THE STORY OF THE NOTHE FORT.

The Nothe Fort was one of over 100 Forts built by Lord Palmerston in the late 19th century to guard against invasion by the French.

Today, the Fort is one of Weymouth's main tourist attractions but, as with so many historical military buildings, it can be difficult for the visitor to grasp the whole picture - both both how the Fort itself operated and its strategic importance.

Nothe commissioned us to make a video to show first how Portland Harbour came to be an important base for Merchant fleets and the Royal Navy and second, how the Nothe was built as part of a network of gun batteries to defend the approaches to the harbour.

Our video makes extensive use of moving maps and animation to provide the 'geography' of the area; vividly portrays the dangers of the Dorset Coast, showing how Portland came to be a harbour of refuge; and uses re-enactors of the 19th and 20th Centuries to bring to life key periods in the Fort's history, demonstrating how the Fort functioned.

Two further films were made for the Nothe: one to show the various gun batteries around the harbour and on Portland bill, the other to document the rescue and re-building of the Fort.

All three films run in different locations in the Fort.
