WATERWAYS IN TRANSITION – Yesterday once more…:2-disc set (Price £19.95)

Waterways in the 1960’s
Malcolm Fletcher’s wonderful colour film takes on a trip around the country. Brentford, the Potteries, Norfolk broads, Foxton and early IWA National Rallies at Macclesfield and Blackburn. Finally Braunston with lots of working boats.

Waterways Moments
The first film by Sarah Edgson from Norton Canes Boatbuilders. A charming glimpse into our waterway past with a prime selection of classic pictures. Sit down with a glass of wine to watch this one.

3000 miles on the flat
John Hodgkinson’s unique first boat, a ex British Waterways flat. This boat covered a vast part of the system and showed it was possible to boat on a budget. Happy days.

Still in business
The story of High Line Yachting. Today there is only a handful of “original” waterway business’s left still operating from their original locations. We look at High Lines development and transition to today. Also includes the story of Boatmans Cabin Co and the Ruston CD2 diesel.

Getting Afloat
In 1960 British Waterways introduced their own fleet of hire boats. We take a look back at these early conversions and new build boats.

Waterway Adventures
David Kilner’s film shot from early holidays on the canals. See Ernie Thomas hire boats, Stourport, Birmingham and a variety of other waterways. See commercial traffic still in action on the Grand Union and BCN.

Hostelcraft operated the horse drawn boat “Pamela”. A converted Bantock we follow the boat on trips showing that horse drawn boating was a little special. Derek Walkers film captures the everyday life of “Jim” a fine Birmingham canal horse.

Running time: 2 hours 42 minutes
Some of the footage has been copied from Super 8 and 8mm film.
The quality is varied but we have included as much film as was possible to not lose rare sights.

Special thanks to Malcolm Fletcher, Chris Clegg, David Kilner, John Bolsom, Ike Argent, John Jinks, British Waterways and John Hodgkinson.
