| The boy and the bridge
I remember seeing this film when it was first released. I also, like tombancroft2 have never met anyone who remembers seeing this excellent film. It is pointless for me to go through the storyline, as this has been superbly covered by tombancroft2. I was twelve years old when I saw it at my local cinema, I enjoyed it so much, my Mother bought me a small "Mamod" steam engine, {similiar to the model the boy has}.

I remember the clip where the boy thinks he is going to get crushed by the massive {600 tons } counterbalance weight,also the one showing the large steam engines working. I recently saw a television documentary about Tower Bridge showing the steam engine preserved, but not in working order.

The film has been shown on television, but I cannot remember when. I would also like to know if this film was made available, as i would purchase it straightaway.
