1.  ST FRANCIS CONNECT ARTICLE - Seal Point Shoreline

Seal Point lighthouse in Cape St. Francis is situated approximately 30 km from Humansdorp and 100 km from Port Elizabeth and is home to the tallest masonry building, standing 27.75 meters high.

It was equipped with a three wick burner andhad an intensity of 15 000 candles, providing a single white flash every 20 seconds.

Named after the patron saint, Cape St Francis is now becoming a popular tourist Mecca. In 1959 a ship the Lady Head was wrecked in the bay at the mouth of the Kromme River and it is believed that a population of swans that inhabit the estuary came from the ship.

One of the primary motivations behind the series was to capture on video South Africa at a particular time in its history, and focalise the historical moment through the eyes of a diverse range of citizens who all have one thing in common: they all live in a coastal region. You could join in the project of documenting this natural resource if you have the means to buy a camera and upload images to a blog accessible to internet users. Of central importance, too, was to record an encyclopaedic overview of the natural environment that South Africa is honoured to enjoy along its coasts.

Not wanting one aspect of the documentary to dominate over another, the format of each episode follows a standard pattern in which Peter Butler, the series’ “anchor” presenter introduces which portion of the coast is being looked at, and what the major themes to be explored are, after which point the experts take over and go into some depth about their particular field of expertise.
