the british film council -border weave



'Border Weave' shows the production of Scottish wool, in stunning Technicolor! We grew up partly in the Borders of Scotland and those roads and countryside are often still as pictured here.
The British Council Film Collection is an archive of over 120 short documentary films made by the British Council during the 1940s designed to show the world how Britain lived, worked and played. Preserved by the BFI National Film Archive and digitised by means of a generous donation by Google, the films are now yours to view, to download and to play with for the first time.

Really like this addendum "Digitisation isn’t a replacement to archiving [my italics -ed], but a means to provide anyone around the world with unlimited access to films that need great attention and care."
