A Day In The Life - Four Portraits Of Post-war Britain Film Poster

Synopsis

These four short observational documentaries by filmmaker John Krish offer an affecting portrait of life in post-war England in the late 1950s and early 1960s. 'The Elephant Will Never Forget' (1953) is an elegy to London's once-thriving tram system. 'They Took Us to the Sea' (1961) looks at the experiences of children in a post-war nation slowly emerging from years of austerity. 'Our School' (1962) explores the opportunities available to school-leavers in the post-war years. 'I Think They Call Him John' (1964) is a touching portrait of the lonely life of an elderly widower.
