TEMPLAR FILMS

Glaswegian documentary shoestringers Robert Riddell-Black, Bob Russell and David Low formed this backroom newsreel business in 1950. Panorama commissions and footie coverage helped swell the company into a thriving documentary short house, with Clydeside industrial filming a speciality. Seawards the Great Ships, the story of the construction of a tanker from drawing board to launch narrated by Kenneth Kendall, was their masterwork. Less feted were Cumbernauld New Town Inaugural Ceremony and Kilmarnock Demolition.
