Roundabout: A Year in Colour 1963
In the 1960s the UK Government, through the Central Office of Information (COI), produced a number of films for overseas distribution. Essentially designed to promote British industry and values abroad, Roundabout was one of the most popular of these cine-magazines, with its selection of topical stories for the Asian market.
The BFI has collected all the Roundabout films, preserved in the Archive, from 1963 to produce a unique and fascinating glimpse back to Britain and it's place in the world 50 years ago. Consisting of 11 globetrotting films, highlights include a visit to the Royal Mint, a tour of a rubber-tree plantation in Southeast Asia, a trip around a British doll factory and a look at modern architecture in London, Jakarta and Saigon.
