Oh right it's Sri Lanka!
24 June 2003 | by CocaCola18See all my reviews

Ah now this look on work by the British overseas was one the GPO Film Units finest pieces of work (along with Night Mail)

I sensed that there was more love, care and ambition was put into this project!

If you're not a student of film or the media in general the odds of watching this are very low... however I much suspect anyone reading this is doing research about the GPO!!!!

A better documentary!

7/10
