Video/Film
45 cans containing in total between 10-15 hours of 16mm colour and black and white non-fiction film mostly on transport and maritime subjects (eg, Isle of Wight railways, ferries, hovercraft, lifeboats, ocean liners, Southampton docks, etc.) Comprehensive footage of the Britten-Norman Company detailing the development of the Cushioncraft and Islander aircraft projects.
Components: 16mm camera original (negative and positive). B&W prints, dupes, and sound prints. The material has yet to be transferred to videotape or digitised; it is hoped that this will be done in the near future.
