I reckon a couple of those ash-covered baked potatoes would be enough to send me Round the Mulberry Bush.Really enjoyed that. Thank you sir.
Wonderful, evocative stuff!
Great film. I think people who laugh at new towns forget the problems of post-war overcrowding in London. The woman who said it was her first home had probably spent years living with in-laws.
Quite right, Tom, and probably without proper plumbing. New Towns were an example of government doing their best to alleviate a known problem. Yes, it was done in a patrician type way, yes, in the long term it threw up other issues but, for the majority of people moving there, it was a good thing.
Amazing, I love the camera work and the transitioning through the different scenes.
