As a part of Martin Parr’s extensive body of work exploring the richness and diversity of the Black Country – Black Country Stories – Martin Parr produced four films; this DVD presents Tudor Crystal, commissioned by Multistory.
Stourbridge was once world famous for its glass. Established in 1922, Tudor Crystal is the last, multi-furnace company producing 30% lead crystal, within a traditional glassmaking cone. This film documents the last three days that the owners, Barbara and Richard Beadman, remained in charge before they handed the company over to new owners.
