Description

Following their acclaimed box sets covering the history of Britain's coal mining and shipbuilding industries, the BFI turns its focus on the nation’s steel industry.

Steel provides the backbone of Britain’s industry and society. It was a driving force behind the Second Industrial Revolution and shaped many regions of the UK. In its heyday over 450,000 people were working in the steel industry and while much of the employment it generated is now gone, its influence still lives on, as was spectacularly illustrated in Danny Boyle's opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympics.

This comprehensive double DVD set features 23 rare documentaries, animations and short films which span the twentieth century. Highlights include footage of the building of the New Tyne Bridge in 1928 and the rare 1945 film Steel which was shot by award-winning cameraman Jack Cardiff.
