    One of the best examples of moving image applied to industry is the films made by the British Transport Film Unit between 1949 and 1982. They catered for the transport industry’s need to train its vast work-force, keep the public informed of new developments, and manage their corporate reputation within the sector. Network Rail commissions short videos to support today’s needs including, internal reviews, scientific research, historical records, training, safety, corporate communication and public relations. Their videos are available on their Youtube Channel and are organised into Playlists which include: Week on the Network, Safety, Level Crossing, Working with Communities and Passengers and detailed account of specific improvement plans such as Ordsall Chord and the Electrification project from Gospel Oak to Barking.
