Default Film of Erie Type 8 resistor manufacture

By chance I've discovered that the Imperial War Museum holds a copy of a film made in 1970 showing some of the details of the manufacture of Erie Type 8 resistors - the familiar ceramic bodied carbon composition ones. The IWM's description of the film is here https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/i...ect/1060039091.

Has anyone seen this film and, if you have, can you remember what was in it ? I'm curious to see it so I've contacted the IWM. They've been very helpful but they haven't yet digitised the 16mm original, of which I think they have just one copy. They're prepared to digitise it and let me have an electronic copy for 40+VAT but if they do then I have to promise that it will be for my personal use only. They tell me that I can show it to other people who might be interested but that if anyone else wants their own copy then they'll have to buy one from the IWM. I could also arrange to post the film online but if I did then there would be a 'per second' fee payable (I've asked how much that might be but haven't heard back yet).

Cheers,

GJ
