As Britain grinds to a halt during an unseasonal cold spell, here's a dazzling seven-minute film directed and edited by Geoffrey Jones, shot in the harsh winter of 1962/3. Jones was working for British Transport Films, and travelled around with his cameraman (Wolfgang Suschitzky, perhaps best known today for shooting Get Carter), filming whatever he saw and then spent a year editing the footage. The result is sensationally good. Martin Scorsese is a big fan, apparently.
