I have a reel of film ( photos attached) that I have been trying to get analysed for some time now, but several people who I have asked to look at it don’t want to deal with it due to the films coating, i cant see the words Safety film on it and so im assuming its nitrous ?? ??
Can you help me im desperate to try and get this transferred to DVD and see what’s on it, it looks like a very old film of a large chicken with wheels! (Like the troy horse with a lot of people in Safari suits and pith helmets possibly from the 1930’s / 40’s?)
It was found in a car in 1975 and belongs to a friend of mine who found it in a vehicle and we don’t know who the owner is?
It’s the sort of film that would be good shown on South Today to ask anyone to come forward who knows anything about it?
Can you help me please!!!

I don't see any photos attached or linked in your post. They really would help. Could you have another go at sending them please?

What exactly is it that people have said about this film? Coating? Please explain a little more.

Of course, you are being very very vague.
A photo would go a long way to explaining the situation, or at the very least a description of width, length, and whether or not it is color or B&W.
If it is color it almost certainly isn't nitrate.
Remeber, acetate suffers from many of the same aging problems as nitrate, with the one rather important exception that acetate doesn't burn under water.
