Modern Furniture (1958)
 
02:31
Tottenham Court Road, London. C/U of two pyramid shaped white light shades hanging at an odd angle - they are designed by Henry Long and are made from Perspex. The narrator explains these shades and all the other furniture in this item are from Christopher and Anthony Heal's latest collection. M/S of a living room (in fact, like all the other 'rooms', it is an elaborate display on the forth floor of the department store, Heal's) . A woman dressed in red, Ann Taylor, enters and goes over a cocktail cabinet, designed by Nigel Walters, made from wood and white plastic. She slides open the main door and then opens a smaller side door which pivots. The pivoting door stands on fold away legs like an ironing board to create a 'bar'. M/S of a dressing table made from white metal and pine standing in the corner of an elegant, modernistic bedroom designed by Ernest Race. A woman dressed in pink, Coral Ellahi, enters and sits at the dressing table. She demonstrates how a central mirrored panel lifts and folds to create a make-up mirror. She uses the mirror to fiddle with her hair. She folds up a wooden panel to the left of the mirror to reveal a compartment for keeping make-up and jewellery. M/S of Coral revealing the rest of the bedroom decorated in dark blue, white and pine. Coral walks over to the wardrobe. Instead of opening like a conventional wardrobe, the plasticised fabric doors fold up like garage doors. Coral takes a chiffon scarf from the wardrobe and wraps it around her neck. She then goes to the next door, opens in and takes out a pink fur lined coat which she folds over her arm before exiting. M/S of a living room with a brown armchair and sofa and a wooden dining table laid out ready for tea. The two designers Christopher and Anthony Heal enter. Christopher sits on the chair and Anthony sits on the sofa. Christopher reaches under the table and uses a lever to lower the table. Anthony also has a go at using the lever - the table can be lowered to three different heights. Christopher demonstrates how the ends of the table can fold down. Low angle C/U of the mechanism under the table which allows it to be lowered. C/U of Christopher - he appears to be wearing a toupee! C/U of Anthony. M/S of another modern dining room with a mahogany suite designed by Robert Heritage. Ann enters dressed in blue and demonstrates the folding extension at the end of the dining table. The narrator points out this design differs from the conventional sliding table extensions and allows the table to be extended even when it is already laid. Ann walks over to a wooden cabinet to demonstrate the sliding doors - "the first sideboard to have sliding doors that are completely flush when closed". M/S of Coral dressed in black sitting beside a record player in a modern living room. She picks up a record and takes it over to a record cabinet designed by Christopher Heal. She unlocks and opens the suspended front door of the cabinet. C/U of the inside of the record cabinet. The narrator explains that on one side there are shelves for twelve inch discs, while on the other the shelves are moveable to accommodate different sized records and "even tape recorder reels". There is even a card index to keep record titles in. C/U of Coral's face as she leafs through various records. Please note the spelling of Coral's surname may be incorrect as it was taken from a hand-written note. FILM ID:73.17 A VIDEO FROM BRITISH PATHÉ. EXPLORE OUR ONLINE CHANNEL, BRITISH PATHÉ TV.

The blocks of ice cream pass through a "miniature waterfall of molten chocolate" (mmm!). Good shots of the choc ices going through all the different process. Narrator speaks of the "robot-like machines working with icy indifference". The "human" side of the operation is shown. Two women sit together at a bench working on special ice cream gateaux. C/Us of women icing cakes and making fancy ice cream "bombes" and weird and wonderful things like a "Madame Pompadour" doll which has a china body and ice cream skirt. Bizarre.

A lovely band of large white flowers is placed upon Joanne's hair. Totally fabulous! "Such feminine impulses to buy new clothes and indulge in beauty treatments can reveal a whole range of hidden characters" states the narrator, he observes how with her new "do" it is hard to believe she is the same girl as in the photographs. "Husbands find it puzzling" states the narrator "it is something which defeats the average male." The suggestion is that hairstyles can change a woman's outlook or personality.

Dinsdale on the main railway line between Durham and Newcastle. M/Ss of a long railway line being hoisted by a crane and carried to the right to be lowered onto a wagon for transporting. High angle M/S as the train carries the lines up the track; high angle L/S of the train moving along the track with large piles of train lines and tracks either side. Panning M/S and C/U of the ballast cleaner in action with numerous men working with it, some digging out the old ballast from the sleepers. M/Ss and C/U of a steam crane carrying a section of old track to a pile of others and lowering it. M/S of a twin job track laying crane (?) carrying a section of temporary 30 ft rails pre-assembled on concrete sleepers which it gradually lowers as it moves along. M/S as the section is carried into position then C/Us of the men levering it into position and making it stable. M/S of the Morris Track Layer; the top of it (the track carrying part) is moving along the length of the wagon it is mounted on, carrying a section of the new track. Commentator tells us it "doesn't need cranes on the adjoining lines, so that services need not be disrupted". Interesting C/U shot from inside the track layer as the moving part comes towards us, then M/Ss from the base of the carrier as the rail section is lowered and from the side as a group of men guide the section down and into position. M/S of the ballast tamping machine; C/U of the jaws as they move along the line then lower to pack the ballast around the sleepers. M/S of wagons moving along very slowly and carrying 600 ft lengths of rail. Several men are standing on top of the rails and walking along the adjacent track. M/S of the end wagon where the rails are being laid out behind the train, then high angle shot showing the men watching the rails being lowered. Interesting point of view M/S from the end of the wagon as we see the rail moving off in C/U either side of us, and the men shifting the temporary rails and guiding the new rail into position as we move slowly backwards. M/S of the same process from the side; the men following close behind the wagon are pulling out holding nuts from the temporary rails so they can be removed easily. Low angle M/S looking up from the line as the machine heads away in front of us while the men working on the line lever up the temporary rails so they fall to the centre of the sleepers. C/Us from sleeper level of the new rail being lowered into position, then of an impact wrench as it tightens the nuts on each sleeper. M/Ss of a man operating the impact wrench; as he moves along we see a large generator that powers the wrench. M/S of the arch of a very high viaduct, tilt up to show an observation car on an arm out over the side of the bridge. M/S from the bridge showing the observation car on the arm attached to a train on the track, with three men examining the bridge for renovation work needed. C/U of a section of railway track, panning up to show a diesel train approaching in the distance. It speeds into view and past the camera, leaving us with a good view of an electric pylon!
