Trivia

The egg-breaking plant features in the film as a bit of a joke , or yolk (sorry! couldn't resist that one). In fact, 'S Behr and Mathew' was a major business in its day (the company was dissolved about the time the film was made), importing eggs from China for over 40 years and breaking 300,000 eggs per DAY, by hand, mostly for bulk sale to the catering trade. A brief clip of the plant in operation can be seen on YouTube - Frozen Eggs (1961). See more »

A rewind to a 60's London that has almost been forgotten
4 September 2007 | by sellerySee all my reviews

An excellent and all too short documentary on post-war London. Made in 1967 and narrated by James Mason, it shows the side of 60's London that most commentators either conveniently forget or more likely are blissfully unaware of.

A strange documentary nonetheless. I never had James Mason pegged as one to go wondering around the back streets of Spitalfields (where, then, some were still alive who could remember the Ripper murders....), old theatres in Camden, and Salvation Army hostels interviewing the unfortunates there.

A must-see if you have any liking of London history and the 60's in particular. Watch and see the past once more, and learn how much has changed, and how certain modern preoccupations (how areas improve and sometimes gentrify) remain with us still today. Very hard to believe today that some parts of London were so different in character a mere 40 years ago.
