'Remembering Fred Dibnah' This film starts in 1991 with Fred Dibnah dropping the last red bricked chimney in Farnworth (just outside Fred's native Bolton). Fred said It's a beautiful chimney, it's a shame you cant pick them up and put them somewhere else. The programme was made back in the early days when Fred was still working as a Steeplejack, climbing up, and knocking down chimneys. The film was commissioned shortly after Fred's hit BBC 2 series A year with Fred, and has been digitally re-edited and mastered. This is the first commercial film that Fred Dibnah commissioned.

Take a look before you buy at the official Fred Dibnah web site www.freddibnah.tv The Day That Bolton Stood Still - A Victorian Funeral with Steam. Fred Dibnah's funeral procession was one of the biggest events that the people of Bolton and Lancashire have ever seen. The town centre streets were lined three and four deep as this beloved - Son of Bolton - with his oily cap set proudly on top of his coffin, made its way through the streets, being pulled by his own recently restored and treasured Aveling and Porter colonial steam traction engine and uniquely decorated trailer. Fred Dibnah's final journey caused the town of Bolton to come to a complete standstill. Fred's Victorian funeral procession was one of the biggest and most amazing events that the people of Lancashire have ever seen. This unique film captures all aspects of Fred Dibnah's final journey and makes up for all that the television cameras failed to capture The film is a historic record of an extraordinary day. Narration is by Fred Dibnah's old and treasured friend Neil Carney.
