School programme and Educational film 1936 7 mins


The magnificent visuals of this educational film are combined with a stiff commentary, perhaps belying the fact that it was made "in collaboration with a panel of Scottish teachers", as the opening titles declare proudly. The film was made by Gaumont-British Instructional, a pioneering company in the production of short films for use in schools.
