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 »

Wonderful film of Geoffrey Fletcher's book.
27 September 2003 | by DavidDevantSee all my reviews

If you enjoy the "off the beaten track" walks and can see beyond the banality of an everyday street, "The London Nobody Knows" is for you. Based on Geoffrey Fletcher's book of the same name, it follows a path round London's more seedy and incongruous locations. Despite being made in 1967 many of the locations visited still remain today, while some are sadly gone forever. This film makes a viewer want to go out and explore their own "town/city nobody knows" and realise that there is always a lot more around them than first meets the eye. Narrated and presented by James Mason, this film really should be seen by fans of Psychogeography.
