Liquid History (U*) A Journey along the Thames and London’s Waterways

1.30pm on Saturday 6th March

Barge through the East End of London on the Regents Canal in 1924, see the London docklands bustling with ships unloading goods from the four corners of the world and Basil Wright’s evocative portrait of the Port of London, made for the Festival of Britain.

These remarkable films are a reminder of the Thames, docks and canal’s once powerful place at the heart of the city’s economy, and their impact on our urban landscape.

Approx running time 70 min.
