Newspaper Train

Loading the player...

One of several government-sponsored films Len Lye made during World War Two, Newspaper Train is more understated and conventional than his typical work. It depicts the lengths workers went to during the Blitz to distribute papers from the capital to the rest of Britain, and stresses the importance of ‘honest news’ in wartime.
