The People’s Liners

10th March 2020, BBC4 20:00. A repeat screening of Quintessence Director Robin Toyne’s “Timeshift” film… A colourful voyage of high teas on the high seas, family pleasure trips and the original booze cruises in the company of passengers and crew of the steamers which, from their Victorian heydays to the 1960s, plied between industrial cities and their nearest seaside and offered day trips from those resorts.
