Part of our “Seventy Years of British Documentaries to Celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee” film series Holidays are a good idea, aren’t they? These two films made for British Transport Films show how taking the train – hauled by a filthy, climate change causing steam locomotive – to the seaside has changed since the 1950s. Beauty contests anyone?

Brilliantly made documentary featuring a day at a typical Secondary Modern School in 1962. Sparkling dialogue and as captivating today as it was when it was first made. Teenagers are the same all over and take away their mobile phones and today’s secondary school pupils would be just like this lot. We have shown this film before but we’ve been asked to show it again. Made by celebrated Director John Krish.

BBC film interviewing West Indian immigrants in Birmingham about their experiences since they arrived. Remarkable.  “We call England ‘the Mother Country’. We have been taught that it is the Mother Country, it has been drilled into us as the Mother Country, from the cradle, really, to the grave, because... Jamaica has been governed by the English for over three hundred years, and so everything about it is English.”

The transport of goods has never been such a topical subject what with Brexit and ‘supply chains’, anyway in the 1950s British Transport Films did its best to show that clanking, smoking steam locomotives were an efficient way of getting goods from A to B. Good luck with that.

BBC film about Britain’s Pop Artists and their crazy, swinging London lifestyles. As the media struggled to get a grip on what was going on ( Warhol, etc ) BBC’s Monitor programme made this including Peter Blake (very droll), Pauline Boty, and others. Watch David Hockney doing the Twist! Great stuff.
