Bottle Beano

1965, Clacton-on-Sea (Essex)

Bottled drinks manufacturing process.

This records the process of bottling soft drinks using an automated process. A man starts up a conveyor belt and then we see him dextrously slotting in used glass bottles. The film follows the progress of the bottles beginning with washing. There is a close up shot of the pressure and temperature gauges. The bottles are unloaded onto another belt, filled and capped. The final shots show women working the labelling machine.
