Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

A slightly unusual video posting here.

It's a pop video that was filmed at West Ferry Printers in South London - one of the biggest newspaper printers in Europe - producing around 27 million newspapers each week.

Many thanks to John Bowles for flagging this one up.

Says John:

It was filmed in Westferry Printers where I worked until last year printing different nationals. As a point of interest some of one of the James Bond films was filmed there as well, I remember watching Pierce Brosnan rolling around the reel store ( I offered to be his stunt double). They intertwined the filming there with another European printing plant and seamlessly married the 2 together, very clever these film people.

If you are easily offended, please be warned there is some swearing in the film:
