Very Interesting Film
My brother bought this DVD for me as a Christmas present. I happen to live in Clacton and, though not Essex born I cant help but be interested in local history. This hour long documentary is made up of mostly black and white film of an era almost long forgotten. I was born in 1945 and can still remember when cars were somewhat of a rarity, kids could play safely in the streets, few people had a phone and computers were only in the imagination of science fiction writers.
Even if you do not live in Essex this film is well worth a look. Compared with today, even though some of it is set in war time there is an air of almost innocence compared with todays rat race.
After watching this I have now ordered part 2, via Play.com. I live in a retirement development and by popular request I am playing this in our communal lounge later on today.
