A vintage gem
27 March 2010 | by taywalsh-655-244056See all my reviews

I am fortunate to have this little gem on video, so can watch it whenever I feel like a little nostalgia - which is quite often as British films (specially the old ones) are my favourite

We should have made more of these "silent" film - we were very good at it. They were probably quite inexpensive to make and I suspect the actors received a pittance. This film shows life on a building site in the 1960's before the days of "Health & Safety"; and when older men outnumbered the younger labourers. The Clerk of Works (now Site Agent) was always a senior figure in those days

I remember it well, though I didn't experience my first site visit professionally until 1980. By the way, whatever happened to those 4wd cement/brick carriers, you rarely see them nowadays
