Made In Dagenham uses British Pathé footage

Nigel Cole’s new movie Made In Dagenham uses some footage from the British Pathé film archive. From the photo above you can see how the archive was relevant. (I’m pretty certain the originals to each of those late 1960s outfits feature somewhere in our Fashion Archive!)

The footage used in the new film is mainly of action-packed Ford strikes and shots of the pressure imposed by threatened closures. Shouting through megaphones, police barricades and furious marching workers, it’s great that the unrest of this period was captured on film and is available in the British Pathé archive.

Starring Bob Hoskins, Miranda Richardson and Rosamund Pike, we’ll be interested to watch Made In Dagenham although David Cox’s review in The Guardian was quite damning.
