This is one of a collection of films made by the Selby Cine Club. This film provides a wonderful overview of the town of Selby as it was in 1965 and is accompanied by an interesting historical commentary. It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
An appeal film for assistance with a number of projects aimed at the unemployed and their families in the Middlesbrough and Cleveland areas. The film is introduced by Lord Zetland and features a visit to Middlesbrough by Prince George. The film then shows various work and recreational projects organised for the unemployed, which include an exhibition of crafts made by Cleveland unemployed; teaching of new crafts; building of greenhouses by the unemployed; training of boys as waiters; boxing matches and other entertainments; a local comedian, renovation and conversion of an old barn by the unemployed; and boys' camps. [Please note that the picture runs too fast but this was how the original film was produced.]
