I have only seen Part 6 of the six parts of this film. Entitled "The Good Life" (1951), it is a 40-minute documentary about Greece post-war. The master of documentary film-making, Humphrey Jennings, was killed during the making of this film, while reconnoitring one of the locations, and Graham Wallace completed the direction.
Filmed in Technicolor and sponsored by the Marshall Plan, it is about pan-European efforts to tackle endemic poor health and disease. A Scandinavian and Greek medical team visit a Greek village to carry out TB inoculations and a variety of other aspects of health are covered.
It is a charming documentary and the Greek children will bring a smile to your face.
Part 6 was shown during a short Humphrey Jennings season at the Imperial War Museum in London in May/June 2006.
