Rated TBC by the BBFC


An evocative journey back in time to remember life in Britain before World War 2, from decadent summer garden parties to the arrival of the motor car, and from the rapid modernisation of city life to the thrills of holidays by the sea in Blackpool in its heyday. The film, which makes extensive use of real cine-film footage, looks at the fashion, technology, transport and entertainment of the period.
