A very interesting DVD. It's a pity it didn't have the chain making included, but none the less worth it.

This is a must for anyone associated with the Steel Industry.Shows in detail many of the old pratices of steelmaking,no longer in use due to the advancing technology now being used.
This is a must have for anyone interested in Industrial history,

Great collection of films about the steel industry. The film on Chain Making was brilliant.

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.

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.

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.

Would you ever believe to it that Industry was Work and the People who could do it. That work was the People PEOPLE and that they did it, that the corporations and multinationals were nothing domineering as is today. The life of the people was somehow related to their place and the reality- well technology made us all drifters and obsolete concept of deformed land scape.

Some very interesting old film of the spectacle of steelmaking. Some is publicity film in a strange acting style which grates a bit, but still contains some excellent steelworks scenes.
