Product Description

This regular series of short documentary films was produced in the 1960s by the Special Features Division of the Rank Organisation to screen in their Odeon and Gaumont cinemas - replacing the circuit's Universal News, now rendered largely irrelevant with the advent of television news broadcasts. Marvellously concise and beautifully shot, these colour featurettes, numbering over 500 in total, presented cinemagoers with varied aspects of modern British life.


Transferred from the original film elements, this volume presents films encompassing World Affairs of every shape and form - from a visit behind the Iron Curtain to the fun and sun of Copacabana beach, from the plight of Tibetan refugees to the building of Africa's Kariba Dam.

Another very well crafted DVD restoration of the original film clips. The World Affairs Look at Life is a superb documentary of world events during this amazing time in recent history. Although the world events are compiled through the British filter of that time, it is likely one of the most sincere viewpoints available during that interval.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality of transfer to DVD 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I found the transfer to DVD not up to the standard I expected. I have seen the BBC Four programmes where they have used extracts from various themes and their transfers appeared to be better. The first DVD I looked at changed in sharpness and momentarily went out of focus. The whole point is that the originals were taken from 35mm prints and should be almost perfect. Have they squashed too many films on each disc ? I would love to buy these if they were remastered to Bluray. The films are small gems showing life in Britain in the sixties. Wonderful to see the beginnings of the Common Market and the expectations what europe would become.
Look at it now! Thanks to Amazon UK for splendid quick delivery service.
