The Cam Camwell Collection is an nostalgic series of archive films from one of the best-known cine cameramen of the last century. Cam Camwell’s work is well known in his home area of the Midlands, however these programmes cover virtually every part of the British Isles, including private railways, in the early 1950's. During the 1950's Cam Camwell was the Secretary of the Midland Area of the Stephenson Locomotive Society and was instrumental in organising many railtours, and was thus in a unique position to film, on his 16mm cine camera, many long-vanished scenes.
