Title: the WRECKED ZEPPELINS IN ESSEX [Main] Film Number: IWM 1206
Summary: Disjointed film of the wrecks of Zeppelins L32 and L33, the morning after their crash in Essex on 24th September 1916. Date: 1916
Description: The film, which claims to be "the only complete cinematograph pictures taken under official authorization" opens with shots of the twisted wreckage of the L32 which came down in flames. A number of military and naval personnel pick their way about the debris. This is followed by a film of the other Zeppelin, which came down virtually intact over a road and then burnt out, breaking its back. There are various general shots of the metal lattice structure, in particular the undamaged nose. Attention is drawn to the nearby cottage in the background whose occupants "have a grand-stand view". There are some closer shots of a gondola, a propeller, a wrecked engine and so on. A number of military personnel are seen examining the wreckage. Running Time: Footage: 439 ft; Running time: 5 mins
