Artist Ben Parry filmed along the original route of the Liverpool Overhead Railway as it was in early 2008, capturing the journey in single real-time tracking shot. Viewers are taken along the length of the docks from Wapping Dock into Seaforth container port at the mouth of the River Mersey. The film is split into two journeys from South to North, day to night, back and forth with only a vague sense of beginning or end.

This fascinating film can be seen in the Liverpool Overhead Railway gallery.
