Look at Life: Volume 4 - Sport

Synopsis
Forty-two films from the LOOK AT LIFE series, produced by the Special Features Division of the Rank Organisation every week for screening in Odeon cinemas between 1960 and 1969. Transferred from the original film elements, this volume presents 42 films, many of which have remained unseen since their first screening, with subjects ranging from Scotland’s burgeoning winter sports business to the Grand National, from mountaineering on the Matterhorn to the drama of Saturday football fever, 1960s style.
