What do people do all day?




Many thanks to Crying all the Way to the Chip Shop via Liberal England for all that mighty heart. This is a wonderful little production by British Transport Films, showing work and play on a day in London in 1962. Most people must have been unwitting participants but I recognised one of the women in the supermarket scene as quite a well known actress whose name I’ve forgotten. It reminds me of the old Look at Life films you always saw with a main feature way back when; full of optimism and all's right with the world.
