Description

A bottle of milk tells its story in this charming educational film from the Milk Marketing Board for Northern Ireland.

Let a talking bottle of milk take you on a trip through Northern Ireland’s dairy industry. Talking cows with enjoyable accents and Jack the driver each take up their part of the story along the way. This film by Roy Spence boasts of the hygienic efficient system that creates bottled milk from the dairy farm to the processing plant. As our story draws to a close take a waltz on the bottling line fairground before arriving back in the classroom.
