    Film of a well known glass making factory in London

  • Description

    A film about a well known glass making factory in London.

    We see various shots of men or workers frantically pulling / pushing trolleys with glass products in and out of a very hot looking blast furnace. Quirky music helps to give the film a frantic atmosphere the commentator refers to the process as a "..smash and grab raid."

    The film ends with a shot of craftsmen shaping the molten glass into a swan.
