This is an edited version of the 1952 film in which Sir Hugh Casson and Patrick O'Donovan look back to the Festival of Britain on London's South Bank. We have cut descriptions of the architecture and how it would help design Britain's new towns.

The closing words relate to the Korean war then being fought by the British along with the Americans and Australians.

A DVD double album that reflects life in London at this time entitled 'Capital Transport/All That Mighty Heart' is available from Beulah.
