YouTube: The British Steel Industry: Iron & Steelworks - 1945 Educational Documentary


A Technicolor masterpiece, 'Steel' explores the manufacture of steel and the workings of a foundry. Scenes show the English Steel Corporation, Sheffield; Firth Brown's and Arthur Balfour & Son, Sheffield; Colvilles Ltd of Motherwell; Rolls Royce and Hillingdon, Glasgow; Dorman Long's works at Middlesborough; Guest, Keen and Baldwin's at Cardiff; and Richard Thomas Ltd at Ebbw Vale.

'The backbone of Britain's industrial power lies in her great Steel Industry. In the blast furnaces, forges, rolling mills, and machine shops labour vast numbers of highly skilled craftsmen who, for generations, have devoted their lives to serving a great tradition known the world over - the tradition of British Steel.'
(Films of Britain - British Council Film Department Catalogue - 1946)
