A series of six documentary films in which the flavour of a vanishing Britain is captured by Terence Carroll
6: THE GENTLE DRAMA
Real English villages with real country people living real rural lives in them have almost slipped into myth and memory. One that's still left is Powerstock, in Dorset, complete and tranquil with squire, bellringers, an old lady who still milks her cows by hand, and a vicar who does his rounds on horseback. This film catches the climax of the year and of the gentle drama of rural existence-the harvest festival.
