A Fantastic Social Record,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Look at Life: Volume Three - Science [DVD] (DVD)
These short films are a fantastic social record of life in the 1950s and 60s. Indeed, as they say, 'The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.'
Made in 35mm colour, the picture quality is very good and opens a window on life as it used to be, with a commentary to match. Cars, fashions, homes, streets. The electronic 'brain' which fills a large room. An optimistic look at nuclear power. North Sea gas and oil. ERNIE picking Premium Bond prizes and glowing while it does it. An artificial limb factory. False teeth being made. Engineering apprentices in tweed jackets and smoking a pipe. Plus many more.
A real nostagia fest, which I highly recommend.
