Default The Little Ships of England

Just found this. Didn't see any routers, but it's very interesting. And check the list of videos along the right side, looks like some more good ones.
The Little Ships of England - 1943 Wooden Boatbuilding Educational Documentary - YouTube
Love these old films. History.

Movie theaters in the 50s still used these films along with a cartoon if it was only a single feature and TV in the 60 used them as fillers - I actually developed an interest in history an current / world events from watching them when I was a little guy.

Great stuff

Richard I miss seeing these documentaries (and the serials) when I go to the movies now, I think that's where I learned most of the history that I remember.

I miss the documentaries too. And when I was a kid, they had Saturday matinees. For about a quarter we got to see a serial, a short, about an hour or two of cartoons, and then usually a low grade western. Good times. I don't attend movies anymore, too expensive, people always talking, the floor is 'always' sticky, snacks are priced sky-high, and it seems always have to go to the bathroom and miss an exciting part. Now I just watch at home, where I can pause when need be. Miss those days, but am happier with these days.
