The Way Ahead: National News Issue No.4 (1966)
25 minutes

The Way Ahead was a staff film magazine that ran to 10 films in total.

The first films were known as Wyvern News Issues Nos. 1 to 6 and were dedicated to reporting affairs on the London Midland Region of British Railways. National News Issues Nos. 7 to 10 covered the whole railway network. The series was filmed in mono but became an increasingly high burden on the film unit's resources.

National News Issue No.4 (Way Ahead No.10) was a compilation of news reports from several regions including items on freight, workshops, computers and Miss Rail News 1965/66.


Additional Information: This was one of 150 films entered for the 1966 National Industrial Awards Competition (viewed 23rd & 24th May). It was entered into Category F (Films on management and manpower training, intended for industrial rather than general audience.)
