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.
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.
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...
