British Motor Shows & Motor Racing In The 1970s - Motoring Collection

British Motor Shows & Motor Racing In The 1970s
The British International Motor Shows were an annual celebration of the very latest car designs, and British Movietone News reported on all of them that were held at Earls Court throughout the ’70s, until the last in 1976.
All those reports are contained in this DVD alongside features on the Commercial Vehicle Shows of ’71, ’72 and ’74, the Racing Car Shows of ’71 and ’73, the Earls Court Motor Fair in ‘77 and the Custom Car Show at Alexandra Palace in ’79.
Over 100 different car types that defined the decade are featured. It was the decade that pre-figured the rapid decline of the British motor industry and the last ditch attempts of an ailing British Leyland to shore up its market share and exports with a range of innovations.
Cars featured include : Triumph Stag, Triumph GT-6, Lotus Europa, Lotus Esprit, Vauxhall Firenza, Jaguar XJ12, Morris Marina Estate, Aston Martin Lagonda, Panther De Ville, Rolls-Royce Camargue, Aston Martin Vantage, Vanden Plas 1500, Lamborghini, Maserati Merak, Jensen-Healy, Ferrari 308 GTB, Triumph TR7, MG V8, MG Midget and the ever iconic Austin Mini, Austin Allegro, Ford Cortina and Ford Capri among many, many more!

Railways At War - The First World War

§ For the first time ever, a comprehensive presentation of nearly 2 1/2 hours of archive film footage evidencing the central role played by the railways in meeting the logistical challenges of supplying the battlefronts of the First World War with the requisite troops, munitions, machinery and stores.

Celebrated military historian Major Tonie Holt provides a commentary throughout on sequences of railway footage from the Somme, Mesopotamia, the Palestinian Front and Siberia.

In many ways tactical success in the First World War depended on the defence of the railheads and the narrow gauge railway supply routes, from them to the battlefronts.

The railhead was where the warehouses, loco maintenance depots and signal and control centres were based; they were also often the point of interchange between the standard gauge national system and the light and narrow gauge railways that led to the battlefield. Railways were the supply line of choice and we see the rapid construction, maintenance and running of the lines by the American Transportation Corps, the American Engineering Corps, the Railway Operating Division of the Royal Engineers, the Indian Sappers, the Australian Engineers and the Canadian Engineers.

We see the speed of the construction of railway lines by the prefabricated ‘Decauville’ track system and the huge variety of locomotive power brought to bear, not only steam, but early diesel, petrol and petrol-electric motive power.

There are views of the enormous BEF locomotive works at St. Etienne-du-Rouvry and a fascinating sequence on the preparation and firing of British and American railway artillery armoured trains witnessed by Roosevelt himself. The assembly of locomotives, flat wagons and rolling stock at St.Nazaire.

By the armistice, railways were often the only functioning entity in areas of widespread devastation, for example at Aix-Noulette, Ypres and Verdun. We also see the mass exodus, by steam locomotion, of troops from the battlefields at the end of the war back to the French ports and early scenes of the Dunkirk ‘roll - on, roll - off’ train ferry.
