Look at Life: Volume 5 - Cultural Heritage

Synopsis
This collection presents 64 films from the LOOK AT LIFE series encompassing Britain’s cultural heritage in all its forms and documenting a fascinating era of change - from the rebuilding of post-War Coventry to the traditions of the student rag, from the country’s still-flourishing tradition of brass bands to its contemporary art scene. The LOOK AT LIFE series of short documentary films was produced in the 1960s by the Special Features Division of the Rank Organisation to screen in their Odeon and Gaumont cinemas - replacing the circuit’s Universal News, now rendered largely irrelevant with the advent of television news broadcasts.
