THE MANCHESTER SHIP CANAL:
Two films made in 1997/8 aboard vessels on the MSC.
TUG STORY The first film shows a typical day in the life of two MSC tugs and their crews. We not only enjoy the scenes aboard the tugs but also go on board a vessel under tow. We meet the pilots and witness the everyday operations of movements on this grand waterway.
THE 250 TON CRANE Purpose built in Holland this wonderful steam electric crane is still in very original working order. We follow life aboard over two days as the replacement of lock gates is undertaken at Latchford. Interviews with the crew and a full tour of the crane allow the viewer an unprecedented look at this machine and how it operates. Tugs of course are on hand for towage and other duties.

Special thanks to the Manchester Ship Canal for assistance in making this film.

Also thanks to Don Morgan, Carmel Tugs, Ed Rimmer, Vic Brown, Tony Lewery, the crews of the tugs and crane with a special mention of Pat O'Neill for the best food in Latchford.

Running time 99 mins
