  • Description

    Wood Green, London.

    Making Brighton Rock at sweet factory run by George and Gerry Tell.

    M/S of man spreading sugar solution onto large baking tray. He adds blob food colouring. He folds the sticky slab and carries it to a machine. The machine mixes the colouring and the sugar solution.

    Various shots of two men folding strips of the sugar solution. Looking at the end of the strips we see they are letters of the alphabet. Letters spelling "Brighton Rock" are squashed together and then wrapped in a white sheet of sugar mixture. The slab is several inches high and several metres high - looks like gigantic stick of rock.

    Various shots of men stretching and rolling out the slab by hand until it is long and thin enough to be cut into sticks of rock. Various shots of woman cutting long thin tube of rock into portions to be wrapped.
