The rediscovered film of amateur cameramen and 'home movie' makers of the 20s and 30s.
Today half a dozen amateur cameramen portray the life and times of a particular corner of England in the 30s - the orbit of the folk who lived and played in south-east London, Southend and rural Kent.
Series producer DAVID COLLISON Presented by PAUL JORDAN
with Douglas Fairbanks Jr Irene Dunne excels in this madcap comedy with a full cast of 30s' favourites: Margaret Garret is the toast of Broadway, but she doesn't have any fun. Her irascible family have given up their own careers for her, and they never let her forget it. When Dannie Brewster , a maverick globetrotter, woos her at the stage door she first avoids him and then has him arrested. But she cannot dampen his determination to show her there is more to life than worldly success.
