This week the choirboys of St Paul's Cathedral are singing for their largest ever worldwide congregation. But what is life like for these 38 young musicians? This film, first shown at Christmas 1978. explores this little-known world from audition day to special performances before the Queen Mother, through a typical day starting at 7.0 in the morning to the glories of Christmas carols in the darkened Cathedral.

An aerial anthology - film, poetry, and music of England - with the Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman. A look from the air at England through the seasons of the year. From the cliffs of Cornwall to the Farne Islands, from Castle Howard to Harlow New Town - this is a land of wild uplands and tamed suburbia, of rural solitude and seaside holiday camps, of industrial chimneys and landscaped gardens, of Roman walls, Georgian canals, steam engines and motorways.
To accompany the pictures Sir John Betjeman has chosen verse from the English poets, ranging from Shakespeare to Philip Larkin, linked with his own commentary. Voices Michael Hordern, Richard Pasco, Prunella Scales, Janet Suzman
"Had enough beauty to make the heart lift in joy and wonder." (DAILY MAIL) "Magical and often very funny." (DAILY EXPRESS) "A luscious, glorious film." (YORKSHIRE POST)
