What could the future hold for young Wearsiders?
Documentary 1974 18 mins
With the FA Cup already on the mantelpiece, what else might the future hold for young Wearsiders? The outlook is bright in this heady documentary predicting art, disco, glass blowing, shopping and shipbuilding. Definite highlight: the extended musical montage layering industrial scenes, kitschy romance, and local locations over library soundtracks.
The film was sponsored by the newly-incorporated Metropolitan Borough of Sunderland and would have been used to showcase Sunderland's potential for business growth in the North East.
