About this work

Also known as

British Medical Association Round the World Tour and Annual Meeting at Melbourne. 1935


This amateur film, which has been edited semi-professionally with additional intertitles and maps to orientate the viewer, consists of footage shot on the BMA's World Tour. This material is not duplicated on the Wellcome LIbrary's series. The first sequences are of The Great Lakes, Banff to Lake Louise, then travelling onwards by train through the Rockies to Vancouver. The group arrive in San Francisco, travelling to Honolulu. The passengers are garlanded with lei. Aspects of Hawaiian tourism are seen - Waikiki beach, dancing, diving. The engine room and footage of a baby in a bouncer. The sequences crossing the meridian are replicated here.


UK, c.1935.

Copyright note

British Medical Association


This DVD is a copy of a film series retained by the BMA. The BMA funded the transfer and duplication of this material which has been loaned to the Wellcome Library.

This series of films (there are 6 in the collection) relate to the British Medical Association's Round the World Tour and Annual Meeting in Melbourne, 1935. This series is an alternative itinerary to that held in the Wellcome Library. The films appear to have been available to purchase as a customisable souvenir of the journey on a reel-by-reel basis. The key difference of route was that the outgoing journey left from Liverpool, England, and then travelled across Canada via Quebec, Toronoto and Niagara.
