Video: This is Lebanon - A 1950's Documentary

A slow-moving, original footage documentary detailing the country's state, educational, industrial, and touristic attributes in the early 1950's. I haven't seen all of it yet (a little too slow moving for my taste), but as far as I have seen the film has some excellent footage. The original posters of the documentary on YouTube provide the following description: A British film-maker captured the spirit of Lebanon while on a road-trip. He shot almost everything. This is a very rare footage with a recently added narrative.

Enjoy:

    Too bad the image is blurry.
    The textile factory in Hadath (video # 2) belonged to my grand-pa :)
