  • Description

    Continued from Reel 1. Sunblest bread being made at bakeries.
    Reel 2. Big dollops of dough are flopped out of large machines into bins, covered with cloth and left to ferment. Dough goes through machinery, being kneaded and cut then rolled into sausage shapes. Men put them in tins on a conveyor belt; they go into ovens and come out cooked the other side (obviously takes a bit longer than this!). Commentator compares this method to the old way that 'Grandmama' used to make bread, saying "We've made our bread better, and even more hygienic". Loaves on cooling conveyor belt.

    Men in white coats and hats make loaf shapes: cottage, Vienna, French sticks, French rolls, bloomers, baps and fruit loaves, that head towards the ovens. White loaves are sliced and wrapped by machines. Wrapped traditional Scottish batch loaves on conveyor belt; several shots show processes involved in making them with crust at the top and bottom only.

    In the despatch department workers load orders onto trolleys that are stacked into the back of trucks. Sunblest vans drive out of the depot and away from the bakery buildings. Van drives through town, stops outside bakery and man delivers pallet into shop. Lovely footage as woman customer buys a Sunblest loaf and squeezes it to test the freshness. Great shots of women choosing loaves in supermarket. Elderly woman in grocer's picks loaf off counter and pays man (this is really nice footage). Exterior of corner grocery. Several good shots of men going round housing estates with big baskets of bread, selling door to door to housewives. Excellent footage of women cooking with bread at home - bread pudding, omelette with fried bread, summer pudding, croutons on soup, Brown Betty Pudding, fried cheese sandwich (yeuch!), little hamburgers on small rolls, toast topping casserole. All really good for illustrating suburbia, middle-class lifestyle, housewives etc.

    Back at the pub the landlady prepares bready 'appetisers'. Canadian, Rector and Miller order bread and cheese from barman to go with tomatoes and tuck into the titbits. Fade into shots of plates of bread, cheese and tomatoes. Miller spouts about how fascinating bread is (cataloguer begs to differ by now). Combine harvesters in wheat field.

    End credits: Written by Douglas Warth; Associate Producer Lionel Hoare; Produced by Terry Ashwood; Directed by Eric Fullilove; The End.
