Description

This is a short film in two parts: the first is of the Blakely family; the second part is in a steelworks.

The film begins out in the countryside covered in snow where a small girl in a red hat plays with the snow. A group of people walk through a park covered in snow, and there is a frozen pond with ducks and geese. The cooling towers can be seen in the background. Next a group of people arrive at an urban house, and a small girl is playing outside a rural house.

The next portion of the film shows red hot steel being laid out and rolled in a steelworks, possibly Parkgate, Rotherham.
