From the East Riding Archives and Local Studies Service, ‘The Man With The Notebook’ was the first road safety film with sound to be made outside of London.

It was shot in and around Beverley by local Picture Playhouse owner Ernest Symmons. It features well known areas such as Saturday Market, Ladygate, North Bar Within, North Bar Without and The Rose & Crown public house.

Narrated by Captain C E Banwell, Chief Constable of the East Riding Police, the film presents various road traffic scenarios and illustrates their inherent dangers.
