Of interest cinematically but not really in terms of actual content
21 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Starting with the delivery of raw material and finishing with the shipping of finishing products to the point of public sale, this early British documentary is slightly interesting in the way that we get to see an industrial process from over a century ago and contrast it with today's working environment. In regards what the process is then, it is a shame that it is something as bland as biscuit manufacture because really there weren't loads of EHS things jumping out at me in the way they often do in some old footage like this. Indeed it is fair to say the whole process is pretty dull in terms of what you can see.

However where the film is quite engaging is if you think around what you are watching and the challenges in getting it on film. The old building is clearly large and dark but yet it is really well lit up and filmed very clearly throughout. As such it is interesting from a historical point of view in regards the formative years of early British cinema but, outside of this, there isn't a lot for the casual viewer to be interested in.
