Countrywide have released their latest DVD ‘Red Sails’.
The film explores through interviews and archive footage the influence of the Thames sailing barge in the development of trade, and its contribution to the building of Victorian London. It also looks in detail at the craftsmen and their trades, which made the Thames barges so unique. A few have become yachts for chartering, but the Thames barge lives on through the recent restoration of one of the most famous: the Cambria.
‘Red Sails’ is a 49 minute documentary that has been produced by Countrywide Productions and directed by Michael Maloney. It includes interviews with Bill Collard, Tim Goldsack, Steve Hall, Jim Lawrence, Steve Norris and Don Sattin, as well as archive footage and contemporary material.
The DVD is available at http://www.cwideprods.co.uk/
