Of Cabbages and Kings and Charley

Old Public Information films and my songs. Well, my remixes actually. Here’s a video I made for my remix of Khartomb’s Cabbage & Kings, usingĀ and edit from “Charley’s March of Time”, a British Public Information film from 1948 by Halas and Batchelor.

 

London to Brighton at 500 MPH

In 1953 the BBC produced a short black and white film of a train journey from London to Brighton in four minutes. I’ve used a copy of the original film for the video of my 2005 track, I Travel, going along with the recent theme of using old black and white films for my “music videos”. Here, the journey is slightly shorter than the original as I had to edit the video to fit the length of the track. I’ve been looking to get a video for this track for a while and I’d forgotten about this London to Brighton train journey!

Hopefully you’ll think the music fits.

If you like the track, you can download it for free at Archive.org – it’s taken from my 2005 EP called Making Movies – just look for I Travel.
