June is bursting out all over and on Tuesday it's Midsummer Day. The toys have some new clothes on the pegs and Julie and Johnny take them to a country fair - and there's perhaps a taste of summer strawberries.

A series of six documentary films in which the flavour of a vanishing Britain is captured by Terence Carroll
