this film is essential for anyone with a love of London. it explores some areas which were a bit down at heel at the time and are now rather better off... touring the capital from the Roundhouse in Camden down to the Thames (and an 'Egg Breaking factory'), through The Bedford Theatre and into the markets in Edgwarwe and Islington, it shows a London that has largely now gone, or else been gentrified into something else. James Mason's commentary is interesting, tho quite (accidentally) amusing at points, as is the shock on the street market shopper's faces at seeing a star in their midsts. this was screened as a companion piece to Finisterre at the ICA in London - a great double bill... difficult to find, but there are copies to be found out there on DVD.
