London's Port & River Heritage - Thames Port
  • Description

    In its heyday London was Britain's premier port. The Port of London Authority (PLA) controlled 94 miles of the tidal Thames, presiding over the great dock systems and hundreds of wharves. The five films featured on this DVD capture London's Docklands in all their glory form the 1940s to the 1970s.

    Thames Port

    This fast-moving 1970s colour film celebrates new developments, including containerisation and the Freightliner terminal with its Goliath cranes. The Port of London authority also reveals its plans for the forthcoming Maplin Seaport Development.

    Faces In A Crowd

    Made in 1969, this colour film looks at a day in the life of London and its docks, celebrating the ties between the City and the commerce generated by Docklands.

    Cape Cargoes

    Filmed in the late 1940s, this film celebrates trade links between London and South Africa. It follows the Llandovery Castle outbound from Cape Town with its cargo of passengers, wools, gold, diamonds, skins and hides, bound for first Tilbury and then the Royal Docks. Even as it unloads, the City of London is already taking on cargo bound for Cape Town...

    Port Of London Today

    A colour celebration of new technology and techniques employed by Docklands in the 1970s, focusing on the handling of grain, wine, oil, timber, meat and cars.

    Port Of London 1959

    The Port of London Authority's own filmed account of its work at the end of the 1950s, made in colour and capturing day-to-day operations along the Thames and in the great dock systems.
