5.0 out of 5 stars A snapshot in time, 23 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 40s Britain - 24 Square Miles / Harting - An English Village [DVD] (DVD)
This is such an interesting piece of research undertaken towards the end of WWII just before the turning point in rural prosperity, farming methods, the transport revolution, modern sanitation and a host of other changes. It is a fascinating picture of how things were. A picture of a world pretty much lost - it is quite a revelation to realise just how poor and under-serviced the countryside was yet in other aspects just how much much richer it was also. Although shot in the middle of the 20th century the countryside of these films has more association with the 19th century than life just a couple of decades into the future. For local historians this sort of material is a must - just a shame that more of Britain wasn't recorded at the time.
