Made in Ealing
The story of Ealing Studios. In the 40s and early 50s
Ealing Studios was the trade mark on some of the finest film comedies ever made in Britain. At his small suburban studios, Michael Balcon nurtured a brilliant team of film-makers who together realised his dream of a native British cinema.
Under Balcon's watchful eye (and sometimes in spite of it) Alexander Mackendrick made The Man in the White Suit, T. E. B. Clarke wrote
Passport to Pimlico, Charles Crichton directed The
Lavender Hill Mob ,
Douglas Slocombe photographed Kind Hearts and Coronets, Michael Relph produced The Blue
Lamp and William Rose quite literally dreamed up The
Ladykillers. Omnibus talks to these and other members of the Ealing team and with the help of unique behind-the-scenes footage, pieces together the story of Ealing's changing vision of Britain.
