  • Description

    No title.

    L/S of snowy mountain which plunges into the sea. Camera pans. M/S of man standing on scaffolding, camera tilts up to show men at work on a building. L/S of three rows of pipes which stretch off into the distance. L/S of a mountainside with piping running up the side.

    "Networks of steel masts and overhead transmission lines are growing up in the valleys. Panning shot of an electrical station. M/S of a man walking amongst the power generators. M/S of him standing by a large piece of electricity generator equipment. "Where coal once reigned, water power is struggling for mastery." M/S of the front of a freight train moving away from the camera. Birds eye view of the railway track from the front of the carriage. Moving shot. Shot of train approaching tunnel from the front of the train. "Opening up the scattered areas...bringing industry to the remote valleys." Train drives through a station, then through countryside. All views from the front of the train.

    Paper records states that this was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 648 - however, it has Pathe Pictorial titles so I would assume that it is Pathe Pictorial 648. This would make more sense with the other items in Tin 131.
