[edit] Information

From scenes of jubilant workers celebrating spectacular launches in the early 1900's to King George V and Queen Mary's morale-boosting trip to Northern England’s shipyards at the tail end of the Great War; from Sean Connery’s perspective on Glasgow's industrial relations in 'The Bowler and the Bunnet' (1967) - the only film Connery has ever directed - to lyrical documentaries in celebration of industrial might such as 'Shipyard' (Paul Rotha, 1935) and the Oscar-winning 'Seawards the Great Ships' (Hilary Harris, 1960), this collection charts Britain’s shipbuilding heritage through famous documentaries, little-known cinematic gems, and emotive actuality films. The early silent films on this set feature newly commissioned, semi-improvised piano scores by the acclaimed film pianist, Stephen Horne.
