• Short Summary

    Material relating to newsreel story "Tangiwai Rail Crash" - 54/3.

  • Description

    Selected originals (offcuts, selected scenes, out-takes, rushes) for "Tangiwai Rail Crash" - 54/3.

    Tangiwai, New Zealand.

    Most of this material did not make it into the British cut version of the story. Seems to be original story from the Australian newsreel "Cinesound Review". These scenes are more dramatic and show corpses being carried to temporary morgue and belongings of those who have died such as shoes and hats.

    Various shots of train wreck and people searching for survivors. SV. Corpse being carried away. SV. Relatives visiting Morgue. Relatives talking to Prime Minster Sydney Holland at the Morgue. SV. Coffin being taken from lorry, and being carried to Morgue. Aerial view of disaster. Aerial view of train wreck. Various shots of wreckage.
