  • Britain in The 50s

    Through the eyes of newsreel cameras and advertising of the time, we present an affectionate look at the way we were in the 1950's: the way we dressed, the way we laughed (and cried) - even the way we holidayed. In 1950, Britain was working hard to recover from the Second World War. Yet, as the decade went on and the economic conditions improved - prompting PM MacMillan to tell people of Britain "You never had it so good" - a cascade of wonderful gadgets found their way into British homes, and families began holidaying on the beaches and promenades. By the end of the decade booming Britain was in overdrive with 5.5 million cars on the road, the opening of the M1 and the arrival of the first Mini.

Preserved by the BFI National Film Archive and digitised by means of a generous donation by Google, the films are now yours to view, to download and to play with for the first time. Set in Boston, Lincolnshire, this short film aims to introduce the viewer to a typical, thriving, market town. Narrated by the friendly local newspaper editor, County Town focuses on the themes of community and industry, gently and genially exploring the changes brought about by World War 2. This film is set in the town of Boston, Lincolnshire (identifiable by the often-shown tower of St Botolph's church, known locally as 'The Stump'), though no names are given in the film. Whilst the effects of the war are often mentioned, it is often as an aside, or presented as a positive change for the area. This film strongly promotes country living, presenting the town's inhabitants as hard-working, but happy. It also portrays the town as making a real contribution to the war effort, along with those who have moved out from the cities to live there. It is speculated that the newspaper editor, credited as Philip Robinson, may actually be the editor of the Lincolnshire Standard, as the paper was/is owned by the Robinson family. The man walking towards St Botolph's at the beginning of the film has been identified by the local parish committee as Mr Holton. He was the Clark of Works during the 1920's / 1930's restoration of the church, and then stayed on as the verger thereafter. He is depicted in vergers robes and can also be seen in one of the church's stained glass windows as a figure clad in green, holding books. Subscribe to our channel for more: https://goo.gl/xs5AMi

The film aims to explain British culture and character. Starting with the ubiquitous pub visit, the film breezes through geography lessons, food, entertainment and traveling on the British Home Front. It was made by the Ministry of Information (United Kingdom) with the assistance of the US Office of War Information. Remarkably the film is not a patronizing propaganda piece like so many other similar productions made during the war. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND / CONTEXT The United States and Great Britain have been firm allies for a century. Their mutually beneficial relationship particularly deepened during World War 2, when the circumstances of war brought hundreds of thousands of Americans through the British Isles. The United States entered the war in December 1941, and American ground forces arrived in Belfast the following month. By February 1942 members of the U.S. Eighth Air Force were on the ground, building towards a strategic bombing campaign. American and British naval and air units cooperated in fierce battles for the control of the Atlantic. The U.S. troop build-up progressed quickly at first to support Operation Bolero, the buildup for a proposed invasion of France. Bolero was suspended amidst concerns that a 1942 or 1943 cross-channel invasion would be premature, and troops were diverted to North Africa and the Mediterranean. In the second half of 1943 the American buildup in Great Britain resumed in earnest. The United Kingdom served as a critical base for American operations throughout the war. U.S. troops embarked from there for the invasion of North Africa in November 1942, and for subsequent operations in the Mediterranean. American units participating in the Combined Bomber Offensive and the air war over Europe were based in England. Great Britain served as the training ground and staging area for Operation Overlord, the massive amphibious invasion of Europe through Normandy on June 6, 1944D-Day. Over 1,600,000 American servicemen and women were in Great Britain as the invasion was launched. Numbers dwindled thereafter, but as late as April 30, 1945 there were still over 224,000 airmen, 109,000 communications zone troops, and 100,000 in hospitals or preparing to serve as individual replacements. At the height of the American presence in Great Britain, American servicemen and women were ubiquitous through much of the island nation. They built or occupied vast encampments of their own, but also spent time in local pubs and establishments, toured the countryside, and befriended British families. Both nations established impressive programs to bring the two cultures together amicably, and to accommodate and entertain the visitors. Tens of thousands of American servicemen married English women, bringing them back to the United States after the war ended. American Forces Radio Network broadcast from the United Kingdom, bringing music and news from “home” to the British air waves. American Red Cross Service Clubs opened to entertain American servicemen off their bases. Pieces of American life and culture were seen and felt across the United Kingdom throughout the war, and Americans in turn took pieces of British life and culture home with them.

This is an old British made (at least movement) pin-lever no-jewels cheap manual wind watch. Extremely cheap buid as can be seen in the video. It still is running!

*** New Video- Irish accent! https://youtu.be/InC_BgEd_LM *** David Ley recently became an Internet sensation for his use of a vibrator to improve vocal range for singers and actors. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZSEby...) Now Ley—who is a drama professor, and voice and dialect coach at the University of Alberta—offers a three-minute tutorial on how to speak with an upper class British accent. With Ley's help, a hard candy and a little practice, you'll be directing the sec-retree to the lav-retree in no time. Look for a profile on Ley in the Spring 2013 issue of New Trail magazine.

You can actually hear everyone now!!! Wonderfully shot around the UK in 1989 and shown on BBC2 as part of their long running & respected '40 Minutes' series. My favourite section is the grand old man with the dragon motif in his ceiling, the music & story are very touching, it's often brought a tear to my eye - Here is the exact piece as used in the film www.youtube.com/watch?v=R42bD2X6n34&index=7&list=FLq4ErovReR2KZfenO8p36Pw Most believable story is the man talking about his aunts who were sisters. Watch out for the hilarious little boy talking about his sister, cute doesn't cover it; as to the story of his grandma, I'm not sure about this one, the daughter could have over heard what her grandma was wearing, and the rest is her imagination. I'm not mad about the last part at the airfield, but overall this is an entertaining & well made programme, in vintage BBC style. New recording over S-VHS & separate audio cables to a top of the line S-VHS VCR. I've removed some of the hiss, but not too much, the picture is also upsampled then upscaled to 720p. It will never have perfect audio as unfortunately I recorded it in LP (long play), which reduces sound quality. This is the best I can do at home, so hope you enjoy this better version. Enjoy!
