Ships for the World - Built in Britain 1966

14 mins United Kingdom Director. Daniel Ingram

Britannia rules the shipbuilding trade - or does she? Britain touts its marine construction expertise in this oddly mesmerising state-sponsored plug from 1966. All stages of production and types of vessel are covered - from research into the design of cargo ships to the fitting out of passenger liners, with an emphasis on the endless search for 'modern methods' which would attract potential custom.
