Red hot rivets, still sizzling from the furnace, are thrown in the air for the workers to catch and fit into place. This impressive feat is just one of the memorable images from the John Brown's shipyard on the Clyde in this attractive educational film, which tours the yard in the company of a party of schoolchildren. Specifically made as a visual aid for teachers, Visit to a Shipbuilding Yard manages to get just the right balance of factual information and striking imagery to keep pupils riveted.
