Joe the Chainsmith (dir: Philip Donnellan, UK 1958, 30 mins)
+ The Saturday Men (dir: John Fletcher, UK 1962, 26 mins)

Two studies of Black Country workplaces, from the days before heavy metal stardom was an option. One captures the fearsome heat and noise of a Cradley Heath chainworks, as well as songs in the pub and whippet-racing on Sunday. The other goes behind the scenes at West Bromwich Albion, with a young Bobby Robson in his prime and lightyears from Premiership glamour.

An overall Metal on Film pass is available for £25. Book online here or by calling 01902 716055
