Independent Transport Videos are proud to present seven short films made by the renowned transport photographer, Malcolm King, during the centenary celebrations for Blackpool trams in 1985. Malcolm shot the films on 8mm sound cine film of which we have kept the original sound throughout, although there are some parts where sound is missing so we have left it silent rather than dub sounds that might not be appropriate. We are sure this will not detract from the enjoyment of this unique film archive.
The films cover a number of events held during 1985 all featuring the famous Blackpool tram fleet. As you would expect, the night time filming covers the famous Illuminations and the many trams dressed up with hundreds of coloured light bulbs!
The films are as follows:
