dc.description.abstractDrawing on archived interview material from 60 participants in the BECTU History Project (BHP) this article considers the nature of employment in the UK Film Industry in the period 1927-1947. Focusing on entry routes, working hours, training and pay grades it assesses the degree of stability present in the labour market across a number of selected below-the-line film production occupations. This provides an historical context to debates surrounding the organisation of work in the sector, which is characterised by both continuity and change. The article argues that the British film industry has never been a stable, 'job-for-life' sector, nor have its labour processes ever followed mass production lines. It supports assertions that assumptions of linear development from secure to casualised employment are inadequate for understanding work in this sector.en
