This recently uploaded 1976 Tourism Department video includes scenes of the Queen’s 1975 visit to the island, Wimbledon men’s champion Jimmy Connors playing in a Southampton Princess tennis tournament and the fleet of Tall Ships which departed from Bermuda to participate in the US Bicentennial Celebrations that year.

There are also scenic vignettes of the island’s beaches, hotels and various cultural attractions. While the video and sound quality show the film’s age, the 28 minute promotional film — titled ‘The Bermuda Secret’ — provides an interesting look back.

    Some great work putting that film together. No easy job.

    The 1976 Tall Ships was the best.
