Spotlight on the Highlands (1948) | BFI National Archive

British Film Institute


Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 18 min.
It's 1948 and a new power is transforming the Grampians. This pacey and informative film| centred on the Tummel hydro-electric power scheme| is romantic in its way| extolling intrepid engineering and rather quickly glossing over the down sides of progress. Its highlights are exciting sequences where a purely visual drama of industry plays out as man and machinery meet and overpower the elements. Commentator Stewart MacPherson was Canadian| but was based in Britain since 1936 and a familiar voice to BBC radio listeners. This is one of some 50 issues of Rayant Pictures' 'Spotlight...' series| each briskly covering a different topic - from fairgrounds to the football pools. Distributed into cinemas in the same package as feature films from 20th Century Fox| they were basically a cross between the inoffensive travelogues and 'interest' films that padded the cinema programmes of the day| and more inquisitive| topical and punchy current affairs series like The March of Time and This Modern Age. This video is part of the Orphan Works collection. When the rights-holder for a film cannot be found| that film is classified as an Orphan Work.
