Technology buffs are in for a treat with this promotional film for Crossley engines of Manchester. We learn how the engines' versatility and performance in nuclear power stations meet the demanding standards of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, and we go inside Calder Hall in Cumbria, the country's first nuclear power plant, and Dounreay, the fast breeder reactor on the Caithness coast.
