West Coast Cargo (1960) [Short]

UK (MIFF 1960 , Documentary and Industry)
Director: David Evans

Across the world on a variety of ships go the products of the I.C.I. Nobel plant on the Scottish west coast. We see, to the accompaniment of jazz music, their manufacture by automatic machinery. With calypso music, flashing colours and deft hands, girls assemble the lead wires to the detonators, which set off explosions in Iran to help find oil, and in Wales where men quarry limestone.
