Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This classroom film sets out to describe how the white sugar we use every day at mealtimes reaches us in the form we know it best - as white crystals. Although the film deals exclusively with cane sugar, and does not mention the production of sugar from sugar-beet, the films gives a fairly clear picture of the production of sugar in the canefields of northern Australia, and the refining processes carried out in the cities further south.
