Hydro Electric Schemes in Scotland - Cruachan - The Hollow Mountain
Two films about the construction of major Hydro Electric Schemes in Scotland. The programme comprises: The Moriston Project (1956, b/w) - This fully detailed film is the story of the construction of the Glen Moriston hydro electric dam by Mitchell Construction Co, from the start in 1952 to its completion in 1956. It shows all stages of the construction of the scheme and doesn't forget to highlight the hard work ethos, and the harsh conditions, especially underground, which the workmen had to endure. Cruachan (1966, colour) - "Cruachan" is the story of the construction of the Cruachan pumped-storage Hydro-Electric Scheme, one of the most ambitious schemes of its time. All stages of the construction are detailed in this meticulously produced colour film in what became known as "The Hollow Mountain" at Ben Cruachan, Loch Awe, Argyll. Full details are shown of the steel foundry making and finishing of stainless steel castings, construction of steel cables, circuit breakers and switchgear, as well as steel pylons and electrical conductors in snowy conditions. Scenes are also shown of heavy equipment being transported to the site. (Pal)
