SVR diesels, August 1995

It was a hot, dry summer - the fire risk at the end of August prompted the Severn Valley to get their diesels out. Classes 25, 50, Western and Warship are seen in action, along with the DMU. (The sharper-eyed viewer will notice something significant missing - and I'm not complaining...)

Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news. British Pathé was at the forefront of cinematic journalism, blending information with entertainment to popular effect. Over the course of a century, it documented everything from major armed conflicts and seismic political crises to the curious hobbies and eccentric lives of ordinary people. If it happened, British Pathé filmed it.

Now considered to be the finest newsreel archive in the world, British Pathé is a treasure trove of 85,000 films unrivalled in their historical and cultural significance.

British Pathé also represents the Reuters historical collection, which includes more than 136,000 items from the news agencies Gaumont Graphic (1910-1932), Empire News Bulletin (1926-1930), British Paramount (1931-1957), and Gaumont British (1934-1959), as well as Visnews content from 1957 to the end of 1984. All footage can be viewed on the British Pathé website.
Rob Tyman : Classic 'hammy' commentary with a plummy accent and a slightly patronising overtone....all set to overly dramatic background music. It couldn't be anymore 50/s/60's if it tried. Nice footage, but after a while this man's voice starts to grate, as does his attempt at being funny by rhyming. Sometimes just reading subtitles is actually better. This film is a case in point.
Martin Margerrison : Didn't realise Sir Alec Guinness could drive a Deltic
Alex Paulsen : That engine driver look most enthused...
jammin023 : 2:19 Those old semaphore gantries are confusing as hell. I know the drivers would be trained to know which one to look at, but it's easy to see how mistakes could be made...
Kevin Guthrie : Excellent
