  • Six Months At Sea In The Merchant Marine

    In this short documentary, I tried to answer some of the common questions that I usually get about shipping. The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as a deckhand. The story follows me on a six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal. This was my first time going to sea on a large ship so everything was relatively new to me, therefore please excuse the couple of shipping terms I misused (such as saying "license" when I should have said "credential"). I have been on many ships since and will continue to ship out for the foreseeable future. Thanks for watching. Film by Martin Machado - http://www.martinmachado.com -Special thanks to Jesse Chan...

    From the http://www.VideoSource.com Global Village Travel Guide and DVD, "Singapore". Stock footage available from http://videosource.com/search.html Transcript: Singapore lies just one degree north of the equator at the tip of the Malay Peninsula where the Pacific and Indian oceans meet. The heart of this great trading city lies at the mouth of the Singapore River, and its history is rooted in the sea. In the 7th century, Singapore was a trading center of an ancient Sumatran empire, known as Temasek or Sea Town. A prince visiting in the 13th century named it Singa Pura, or Lion City, after spotting what he thought was a lion. The 14th century saw the empires of Java and Siam struggling for regional dominance with the Chinese admiral Cheng H...

  • Bugis Street Singapore.

    There has been no formal record on how BUgis Street came about despite theis area being developed between 1819 to 1840. Joanna Moore in her book 'Singapore - The Lion City' states that the street was named after Bugis People who had a settlement there prior to the arrival of Raffles. A curator of the National Museum mentioned, Bugis Street was simply to commemorate the Bugis people since they formed a major part of the population in the early days. Old maps and records showed, before the arrival of the British, there used to be a large canal which ran through the area where the Bugis settled here. They were seafaring people from South Sulawesi province in Indonesia, could sail up, moor their boats and trade with Singaporean merchants peppered along Rochor Canal. The whole vicinity was th...

A prince visiting in the 13th century named it Singa Pura, or Lion City, after spotting what he thought was a lion. The 14th century saw the empires of Java and Siam struggling for regional dominance with the Chinese admiral Cheng Ho, who was established in the Malayan port of Malacca. Within a hundred years Singa Pura was destroyed and reclaimed by the jungle, until the arrival of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles of the British East India Company in 1819. Recognizing the island's strategic location, he shortened the name to Singapore and declared the island a British free port, and it again became a flourishing trading center, drawing merchants and their goods from all over the world. Today, an eight-meter statue of a Merlion--half fish, half lion--overlooks the river... The Merlion is the symbol of Singapore, providing a welcome to visitors by day or night... Nearby, remnants of Singapore's graceful colonial past are still visible in the buildings that cluster around the Padang, or village green.

British documentary on Singapore made in the pre-World War Two years (probably 1930s) focusing on its status as a British port and successful colony, but with very little on the lives and culture of its inhabitants. Camera pans round the stern of a large ship, which fills the screen, part a small multi-storeyed building with windows like portholes on a wharf, below which mill people who are probably Chinese workers at the port, bare-torsoed and wearing wide-brimmed sun hats. Masts and chimneys of large ships are visible on the other side of the wharf: as the seventh largest port in the world, this is often the entry and exit point for visitors to Singapore. A passenger/cargo boat moored at quayside, which, together with large liners, are the main form of transportation for such travellers. Caucasian passengers emerge from a liner and walk down stairs, past the portholes and several suspension chains; they are dressed lightly, in trousers and shirts or short skirts, or what the narrator calls 'tropical clothes'; a lady wearing large sunglasses and in a short skirts waves to people above her rather dramatically. A man pauses at the gang way to look around, squinting in the bright sunlight - Singapore lies almost at the equator - above, on the stairs near the entrance to the ship, a worker kneels on a step and scrubs it. A street sign reading 'BOAT QUAY' and its Chinese translation, next to an advertisement for Horlicks, sticking out of the weathered, peeling side of a shop house by the river - part of the area up north which is supposedly the best place to see the busy life of the waterfront; below the sign is part of a corrugated iron roof; the camera pans along the side of the decrepit building: gutter pipes, a hole in the wall, panelled windows, white clothing hanging out of the window to dry on bamboo poles and finally the congested quayside: motorcars parked along the road, lorries and carts filled with gunny sacks, labourers walking around carrying various loads, makeshift shelters of wooden poles, corrugated iron sheets and canvas by the water, bumboats and smaller vessels crawling across the Singapore River, and across the water, low-rise shophouses and godowns with large colonial buildings rising behind them. A closer shot of the boats filled with 'the native crowd' unloading goods: they are crammed with bales, sacks, boxes and coiled rope, thin wooden planks act as bridges between the boats and shore; on land, a row of shophouses and the offices of 'European and Asiatic merchants'; manual labourers in rolled-up trousers and sometimes hats, move around. Labourers carry large gunny sacks on their shoulders into a worn, grimy godown (storehouse); the name of the company is written in Chinese over its door and the pillars are plastered with layers of Chinese newspaper/notices; a small wooden table and stool, possibly for eating, stands just outside. This is portrayed as a typical scene in one part of Singapore life. Not far away another kind of 'typical' scene is found at Raffles Place: a shot of its 'pleasant gardens' and 'tall white buildings' - three/four storey buildings with more elaborate colonial façades, shop names and flagpoles; traffic passes on the narrow street below. A group of Caucasian tourists stand and look at the statue of Sir Stamford Raffles on a pedestal outside Victoria Concert Hall - he was the founder of Singapore in 1819, setting up a free port on the island to advance British trade. A map of the region, showing Singapore island at the tip of the Malayan peninsula, just above the equator, 'in a position to dominate shipping routes [traced on the map] between the islands of the East Indies [Sumatra, Sarawak and Borneo also pointed out]'. Singapore's place on a larger map of Asia and part of Africa: it is also an important link to the Suez Canal route [traced on map] to East Asia from Europe; other routes are traced on the map linking Singapore to other parts of the world. Close-up of the map of Singapore island alone. Arrows pointing to the assets of the site that Raffles chose: a wide river estuary, a protective/sheltering low ridge of hills, a natural deep harbour, all in the south of the island. A network of lines demonstrates how the port and city 'have grown up'. An aerial view of the historic colonial centre of Singapore, including St Joseph's Institution, the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus on Victoria Street, the spire of St Andrew's Cathedral, the dome of City Hall and the Supreme Court; in the background, the sea: Singapore's development into 'one of the great commercial centres of the East' is raised to illustrate how its 'history as a British colony has justified Raffles' choice.'
