Tottenham Court Road, London. Men's hair styles from 1956. Crazy styles for the young men of the fifties. M/S of three men sitting and reading magazines in the waiting area of Cyril Parker's hairdressers. Cyril (rather dapper with moustache) sends a finished customer on his way and a young man, Gerrard Bellans from the waiting area walks into the salon to take his place. Another barber is giving a man a crew-cut in the next chair. Tucking a stripy cover over the Gerrard's shoulders, Cyril hands him a book of hairstyles to look through; some wavy and curly teddy boy styles are seen. Gerrard motions to Cyril that he wants a large quiff; Cyril understands and whisks the book away. He then takes a hairdryer to Gerrard's hair and starts to blow-dry some waves into it, teasing them into a large quiff. M/S of the two men still in the waiting area as one nudges the other and they both look on. More blow-drying shots. It seems Gerrard's hair is not quite long enough for the style he wants, so Cyril takes a long 'hair sausage' or 'trunk' and places along the centre of the quiff. He then combs the real hair over the trunk to keep it in place; the trunk makes the quiff protrude from the forehead by about 6 inches! C/U of the man in the next chair looking amazed. Great M/S as Gerrard tips his head back so Cyril can make the finishing touches - the quiff needs it's own postcode by now! Cyril squirts lacquer / hairspray on the monster quiff, then we see high angle C/U of the hair style. Gerrard gets up and seems fascinated by the quiff hanging above his nose. He is dusted off by Cyril and walks off; the crew-cut man looks incredulous as he walks out. Brilliant! BRITISH PATHÉ'S STORY Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news.

Dolls Factory: How Dolls Are Made (1968) | British Pathé

Do you ever wonder how dolls are made? Marvel at how they were constructed at the Rosebud Mattel factory in 1968 from the molding of the heads to the horrific process of popping in the dolls' eyes.

Note: on file is correspondence from the PR officer for Rosebud Mattel; Pathe evidently bought some of the dolls from this story and donated them to the Variety Club's toy fund. Cuts exist - see separate record. Information provided by Alwyn York, who worked at Rosebud Dolls from 1958 until their closedown in 1982. Rosebud Dolls always showed at the British Toy Fair and Mr. York believes this video was a preview for the Toy Show and confirmed that it was filmed at the Westfield Road Factory, Wellingborough. Rosebud Dolls became Mattel Ltd. and then Burbank Toys Ltd. (part of the DCM group). M/S of J.R. Ashby, the Finance Director of Rosebud Dolls, sits writing at a desk. Suddenly, about eight walking dollies (toys, not birds) in pink dresses come waddling along on the floor. John Dennis, the Factory Manager, enters, picks up a doll and discusses it with the man at the desk. Various shots show the making of the dolls in the factory: the heads are sculpted in plasticine; the plastic heads (moulded from the plasticine) have blonde hair sewn onto them and lips and eyebrows spray-painted on through a mask. The designer sculpting a doll's head is Peter Nevett. Nice M/S of eye-less heads travelling along a conveyor belt; the eyes are then inserted into the eye-holes, and a young girl combs the hair into a fashionable (rather bouffant) style. Another girl, Sharon Liggins, fits a little '60s dress onto a black doll. We see a finished doll that cries when you pull its arm (not very nice, is it?). Three talking dolls have their strings pulled and 'speak'; Bugs Bunny and Dr. Doolittle introduce themselves; Chatty Cathy seems a little confused - in an overdubbed voice she says "My name is Rosebud" - I expect mentioning her real name would have been advertising. The three toys all speak again, then Bugs says "I'm sleepy". BRITISH PATHÉ'S STORY Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news.

C/U of a strange shelving system which holds several wooden circular spheres - these are moulds for globes. A woman takes one of the moulds from a shelf and takes it over to a workbench. She fixes it to a device which holds it steady whilst still allowing it to spin. Another girl is sticking red strips onto a larger sphere. The narrator tells us that this is a famous North London firm of geographers (but he doesn't tell us who). He recounts the history of globe making and the technique of building up layers of paper and plaster onto the solid ball of wood. C/Us of pieces of newspaper being stuck on to the wooden surface and of the second girl placing red strips onto her globe. Various shots of the girls at work. Complete globes are placed onto another rack ready to undergo the next process. M/S and C/Us of plaster being applied to the globes. C/U of the craftsman who performs this specialised task.

Absolutely wonderful footage of home made liqueur chocolates being made - yum. Pathe Pictorial takes us through all the various steps involved. They are being made for a "famous Piccadilly store" - which is not named (could be Fortnum and Mason - SL). Sugar syrup is made then liqueur added. Various shots of moulds being made in trays of warm starch. The liqueur mixture is dripped into the moulds then the top is covered over with the starch. The delicate shells of liqueur are taken out of the moulds when the outside has solidified slightly. (Always wondered how they did that!) Cherries soaked in brandy are taken from a big barrel then covered with gooey pink fondant cream - mm! Melted chocolate is seen in a big vat - it pours out of the bottom. Peppermint creams are covered in chocolate. The liqueur shells seen earlier are covered with chocolate. "There are women up to their wrists in it" says the narrator over a shot of a woman dipping chocolates in melted chocolate - her hand is absolutely covered in chocolate - not very hygienic! Various shots of the chocolates being wrapped by hand and arranged in boxes. C/U of a box of very cute foil covered chocolates with the name of the liqueur contained within. Narrator suggests that this is the last place where hand made chocolates are made but I'm not so sure about that. He says that "mass-production" is an ugly word here and talks of the old world charm of chocolates that are made one at a time. Various shots of chocolates on display in the shop then C/U of woman popping a choc into her mouth. "That's probably what you've been wanting to do since we started this story" says the narrator - too right! Cuts exist - see other record.

An object which looks like a large boiler or distilling barrel appears on screen. A man wheels a trolley with a basin on and places it under the strange barrel. He opens a tap at the bottom and a glue-like liquid starts pouring into the basin. After the basin is filled, he closes the tap and wheels the basin next to a long working table. He pours the liquid across the table helped by another man. This is a sweet factory in Wood Green where London Rock is made. Glue-like liquid is toffee of which the London Rock is made - a mixture of glucose and cane sugar boiled in the strange barrel at 260 degrees Fahrenheit. A man pours a colouring into the toffee and starts mixing it slowly. C/U shot of the man's hand mixing colour into toffee. M/S of the two men making letters. The man wearing glasses is Mr Jerry Toll who has made the rock for 38 years. He and another man (young, possibly apprentice) are mixing strips of red and white toffee into rolls, each containing an individual letter. Rolls with individual letters are then placed into a large roll (a huge one) which, when stretched and cut, becomes London rock. Three men are lifting a huge roll to chain it on one side so they can hang it to stretch. After the roll is stretched, hand rolling takes place. Rolling has to be done very fast since it takes an hour for the toffee mixture to become too hard to handle. Succession of shots showing how huge thick roll is stretched and rolled into thin strips of London Rock. Rock is then measured and cut (with large scissors) into strips seven inches long ready for packaging. Film ends with a great C/U shot of a pile of circles, each reading 'London Rock'. No wonder they are famous! BRITISH PATHÉ'S STORY Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news.

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.

C/Us of black and white photographs of Joanne Dainton - film and television actress. C/U of Joanne with very large curlers in her hair. She is at Rose Evansky's London hair salon.

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.

Bus Road Test (1957)
 
02:39
Aldenham, Hertfordshire. At London Transport works at Aldenham, buses are subjected to various safety tests before being allowed to streets. Two men are seen lifting sandbags and placing them on seats to simulate the busload of passengers. Bus is then tested for stability. Two rubber buffers are placed at one side of the bus (in case it fails the test and tips over). Then the bus is tilted by a hydraulic ram (great pressure is applied) to check how stable it is. Man operating a rig is foreman Charlie Taylor who's been working on bus maintenance since 1927. Several shots of the bus being tilted slowly to one side - it looks as if it will turn over. C/U shot of the distance between rubber buffer and bus demonstrates that bus has past stability test. At Chiswick skid patch, a huge polygon is showered with water (buses are showered too) to get slippery. Buses are then recklessly driven - lots of breaking and skidding - to check a degree of control. Scary watch. FILM ID:57.24 A VIDEO FROM BRITISH PATHÉ. EXPLORE OUR ONLINE CHANNEL, BRITISH PATHÉ TV.

How To Serve Savouries - Cooking Tips (1957)
 
02:20
The famous husband and wife cooking team, Fanny and John Cradock, are showing some of the ways to serve savouries. The presentation of the food is as important as the food itself. An elegant woman is seen squeezing a bright yellow substance through an icing tube creating carnations and putting them on the plate. Carnations are just another way to serve butter - colour it with some harmless food dye and squeeze it through the icing tube on a little cube of bread shaping a flower. Excellent! Next come swans made of hard boiled eggs. Two thin slices are cut off vertically at each side of the egg. Then, a pipe cleaner is shaped into S and placed on top of the egg creating swan's long neck and head. Two cut pieces are 'glued' back to the sides with mashed potato (or cream). Mrs Cradock places the swan with the other swans - on the plate covered with chopped parsley. John Cradock scoops small cheese balls to place them on a plate as flower petals. With a bit of butter in the middle and couple of real mint leaves they look very nice - almost too nice to eat. And finally, Mrs Fanny Cradock shows the audience how to 'sculpture' an orange into a basket and some other decorative things. Story ends with C/U of a plate with different decorative things made of oranges. _______ Location: Knightsbridge, London. Original title: Cookery Hints Aka Cooking Tips (1957) Note: the Cambridge Biographical Encylopedia states the correct spelling of Fanny and John's surname as 'Cradock'.
