The films provide an excellent social commentary on life and people's aspirations in the aftermath of WW2 - highly recommended.
Finally, I'm sure it is Clive James providing the voiceover in the film of an Aussie visiting his old wartime English haunts, although no cast list is provided.
The Austin Company and its successors are a source of great interest to me and I own or have owned many of its products dating from 1955 to 2005.
I had seen some of the content before but with fresh (old) film material, I found the whole thing rivetting.
Even my wife liked it as we watched it together on the second viewing.
My highlight was the Austin A50 Cambridge film "I am a Car" Newsreel. I am in the West Midlands and was able to accurately identify several locations around Sutton Coldfield almost unchanged after 60 years!
Nostalgia isn`t what it used to be! But this DVD is spot on for any BMC Enthusiast.
