A restored film documenting what life was like in the Sheffield steel industry during the 1940s has been made available online.

The 32-minute documentary, called simply Steel, is among 25 archive films showing British films from the 1930s and 1940s that have been digitised and loaded on to the British Council archive.

They were originally produced in the council’s early years to try to show the best of the UK to audiences in embassies, consulates and classrooms around the world during global conflict.
