British Film Council - "Steel Goes to Sea" - 1942
« on: May 03, 2012, 08:00 PM »
A fascinating film showing the 1942 construction of either the MV Dalhousie or the SS Ger-y-Bryn. Both ships were sunk by German vessels by April 1943.

Found this myself a few weeks ago. It was shot at Burntisland Shipyard on the Forth where my old dad served his time in the 50's.
Full Away on Passage.

Its amazing.  I'm sitting here exhausted from a stressful week looking after complex computer systems (which I spent mostly in an air-conditioned office sitting on a comfy chair), but seeing this puts it all into perspective.  Dangerous, hard, skilled work.  I couldn't do it.

Loved it though from a health and safety perspective it was a horror film!  ;D
