• Short Summary

    Promotional film for Pringle of Scotland - nice footage manufacture and modelling of sweaters.

  • Description

    Various versions of this documentary were made. We currently hold three versions - see other records. Some material shot in 1953 and some in 1961.

    The "Revised Version" is almost exactly the same as the "Long Version". Missing sequences seem to be the footage listed below.

    Material of Knitwear designer Otto Weiss.

    L/S of women double checking the sweaters, C/U of woman doing same.

    M/S of a steam press being used to finish off the jumper. A tape measure is used to check the size of the jumper then it is folded up.

    Aerial shot of Edinburgh Castle - aircraft moves around and away from the castle. Various shots of Edinburgh city centre - a statue, shopping streets, view from the castle.

    There does not appear to be any material in this version that is NOT in the long version. Therefore use long version where possible.

    N.B. Transferred in Black & White as colour is badly faded on this version.
