A Story of Kind Hearts and Overdrafts.
The story of a handful of young men who wrote a chapter of cinema history. In just 10 years, from post-war austerity, they produced a series of film comedies which were so original and funny that the name of their quiet residential London borough became world famous. In their very own way they put Ealing on the map.
Told by Frank Muir.
Special reminiscences by Sir Michael Balcon, Joan Greenwood, Sir Alec Guinness, Barbara Murray, Jack Warner and some of the writers, producers and directors who were given their chance in what was called 'Mr Balcon's Academy for young gentlemen.'
With excerpts from many Ealing comedies and other Ealing films.

A tiny island in the sub-Antarctic is the home of the world's largest sea-birds - wandering albatrosses. They share Bird Island with vast numbers of fur, leopard and elephant seals; with penguins, and a wide variety of other birds. For 18 months three scientists worked through storm, sunshine and blizzard, studying the wandering albatrosses and filming this unique record of the wildlife of Bird Island.
