Caerleon Cricket Club 1937

3 mins Wales

It’s summer and Caerleon Cricket Club players are in action, the film-maker recording their athleticism with slow motion shots. Ernest Charles Jordan II, son of Newport builder Ernest Charles Jordan, who owned the town’s White Rose Laundry, uses 16mm colour film, recently available from Kodak. The names ‘Reg and Walter Young, Pontnewydd’, are inscribed on the original can.

National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales preserves and celebrates the sound and moving image heritage of Wales, making it accessible to a wide range of users for enjoyment and learning. Its film collection reflects every aspect of the nation’s social, cultural and working life across the 20th century, giving a fascinating insight into Welsh filmmaking, both amateur and professional
