London Docks Dvd

Amateur Film.

Tugs, Sailing Barges & Thames River Traffic.

With original cine footage - much of which has never been published before - and an informative commentary from Joe himself, the films will take you on an unforgettable voyage back in time.

All the footage in his films was originally taken by amateurs - often crew members - on 8mm or 16mm cine cameras.

Hence the quality is sometimes variable.

Nevertheless the films are an authentic record of how it actually was - rather than how the shipping companies would like to portray it in publicity films.

This programme is about the River Thames in London, featuring tugs, sailing barges and other small river craft.

It also has scenes of the docks working from the 1930s to the 1960s, some in black and white and the rest in colour.

Featuring numerous liners and cargo ships approaching the docks and being loaded and unloaded.

All of the film was taken by amateur enthusiasts some of whom worked on tugs or in the docks, others on sightseeing trips.
