5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent contents - less sure of package!, 24 Dec. 2010

This review is from: Shadows of Progress: Documentary films in post-war Britain 1951-1977 [DVD] (DVD)
Another excellent clutch of documentaries. Excellent booklet which has a lot of detail and useful modern discussion added.

If you are, like myself, a serious modeller of the 1950s and 1960s the details from the shots are invaluable in giving an insight into how we used to live. Two things that strike me is the almost universal smoking in the workplace - even in a doctor's waiting room; and the lack of any present day health and safety obligations. I have, however, a slight cocnern about whether or not the work people 'dressed up' for the filming. Any permanent record would always mean being told to put on a clean collar for men! But such a stricture is due to any such films produced in that era. However a brilliant record of social atitudes - the tale of those who were sacked for havign epilepsy shows how far we have come in dealing with some issues.

My only complaint is the packaging. The DVDs - there are four in all - are placed in trays which mean one is partially superimposed on another. I am less sure how well this will protect them adequately. I can see the upper DVD getting damage from the one partially uderneath. I can see this possibly saves space but I have found another box to store two of the DVDs to ensure that no damage ensues. With such a useful record I would not like to lose them.
