5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER BFI CLASSIC, 24 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Steel - A Century of Steelmaking on Film (2-DVD) (DVD)
Bought this film as most 'DVD's from the 'BFI' are very well put together and worth the money. This film is not without execption. The short documentary part of the two disc set showing the production of steel in the 40s and 50s show just how well England could manufacture quality material and provide the rest of the world.
10/10 and I hope that the British Film Industry release a few more of these gems.

Wonderfully evocative films of a time now gone. The video of the Tyne Bridge was enthralling, the music is best left on mute.

This review is from: Steel - A Century of Steelmaking on Film (2-DVD) (DVD)
Films from a time when we had a massive need for steel in the UK to make ships Lorrys cars and so on a must for any heavy engineering fan. Nice to watch but also a chance to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent picture and sound, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Steel - A Century of Steelmaking on Film (2-DVD) (DVD)
I bought this primarily for "Steel Town" as I am from Stocksbridge and my grandfather had a std 8 print of the film that we used to watch in the '70's. I had the std 8 print digitally converted to DVD but the picture and sound on this dvd beats that hands down. The other films on the 2 disc set are obvioulsy also worth a look as is the accompanying booklet.

This review is from: Steel - A Century of Steelmaking on Film (2-DVD) (DVD)
I bought this double DVD set as a gift so was not privy to its content and I missed the public showing of the films so this is a pretty inept review!
However, anything the BFI packages is going to be nothing short of excellent, I have every confidence that. It is 5*
