Papermaking is a traditional industry radically transformed by new technology, as we see in this promotional film for Star Paper Mill in Blackburn, Lancashire. Aimed at an audience familiar with printing terminology, the film shows how one of the brand leaders in the coated paper industry uses the technological developments of the 1970s to ensure absolute control over processes and standards.
