Fascinating short documentary about pylon painters

A friend just made me aware of “Silvering Up”, an excellent short documentary from the 1990s following a team of pylon painters around Kent. Dangerous, and literally precarious, work at 200ft in the air with no harnesses, corrosive paint and the risk of electric shock, it gives a great little insight into the work (and lives) that go into maintaining infrastructures.
