  • Short Summary

    Material relating to newsreel story "Donald Campbell's Record Bid" - 55/58.

  • Description

    Selected originals (offcuts, selected scenes, out-takes, rushes) for story "Donald Campbell's Record Bid" 55/58.

    Some new material different from the newsreel story.

    Some of this footage is seen in the cut story but most of material found is new. Although not in chronological order this material gives a broader and more complete view of the event: "Bluebird" being pushed into water; its engine being checked; Mr Campbell getting ready for trial; crowds arriving and watching (including Mr Campbell's friends and family); successful attempt to break the world speed record; Mr Campbell having press conference afterwards - and finally celebrating with friends - drinking, chatting and relaxing.
