Britain on Film: Getting Down to Business
Sociopolitical Documentary hosted by Rowland Hill, published by BBC in 2012 – English narration
In 1959 Britain’s biggest cinema company, the Rank Organisation, decided to replace its newsreels with a series of short, quirky, topical documentaries that examined all aspects of life in Britain. For the next ten years, Look at Life chronicled – on high-grade 35mm colour film – the changing face of British society, industry and culture. Britain on Film draws upon the 500 films in this unique archive to offer illuminating and often surprising insights into what became a pivotal decade in modern British history.
This episode examines Look at Life’s surprisingly entertaining films on the British economy, at a time when industry faced ever-increasing competition from abroad.
