Look at Life: Volume 6 - World Affairs

Synopsis
This collection from the LOOK AT LIFE series presents films encompassing world affairs in the 1960s, from a visit behind the Iron Curtain to the fun and sun of Copacabana beach, from the plight of Tibetan refugees to the building of the Kariba Dam.
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.
