Where is this to be shown ? In the cinema or on tv ?

It's already been on once before at least. I saw it about 3 or 4 months ago.

 

Fascinating glimpse of late 50's, early 60's Sheffield & it focuses around one particular family. Would be great if The Star could try & trace the family? Not sure if the mum & dad would still be around but the little lad featured would be in his mid to late 50's by now?

 

Great to see all the blokes on a Sunday morning, heading up to Victoria railway station to catch trains to Lincolnshire for a days fishing. Reminded me of my dad & uncles.

Don't worry if you miss it as they show their films over and over again, I've seen this one a couple of times. Channel 81.

You can logon to the BFI ( British Film Institute) site and search free fims. There are a number of films about Sheffield including Hook Line and Sheffield and the fascinating " New Towns for Old."

Another good one of course is YouTube. Laze away many hours watching videos about Sheffield. There's a few good ones on Sheffield transport where people have recorded their journeys.

 

Particular good one is a tram ride from Millhouses Park into the city. I'll see if I can find it & post it.
