    Default Britain on Film

    BBC4 Thursday nights.
    Compilations of Rank shorts about life in the 50's and 60's. Unfortunately the series has nearly finished but still interesting.

    The "Look at Life" documentary shorts were made originally to be screened before the main feature at Rank's cinemas (Odeon & Gaumont), following the general demise of the newsreels which had traditionally occupied that slot.

    Quite a few of the complete films are available on a DVD compilation now.
