Old salts get online exposure

HTML clipboarThe National Film Board of Canada has recently put up much of its collection online, for all to access. This is a fantastic resource for all that is Canadian, but also an interesting look back at seafarers and technology in moving pictures.

Most films are quite dated and specific maritime films are somewhat difficult to find, but within a few minutes I was looking at arctic exploration documentary, another film was a 1979 production on oil conservation, featuring a good deal of offshore platforms, tankers, navy ships and such from the period. You can access the archive online.
