Yesteryear cutting-edge wire production

Cutting edge, 1932 Cutting edge, 1932

This 1932 promotional video by British Insulated Cables Ltd. starts a bit slow, with a quick view of the role electricity and following a couple as they learn about the types of wiring they can put in their new house, but the bulk of this 11 minute-video* is of a plant where it is made.

It covers the process of making electrical wire, starting from bar, including close-ups and slow-motion special effects. The video quality, narrator and musical score make this a very slick production. Watch the video here.
*You’ll wish it was even longer!
