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

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).
