A series of five new films which concentrate on a few hours of intense activity.
On 22 June 1972 Mrs Elizabeth Hibbert was to move from her cottage in Oxfordshire to No 11 Allingham Street, Islington, London, Nl. On the same day, to make way for her, The Bassett Family were to move out of No 11 Allingham Street to their new home across the road, No 10.
The success of the twin move was to depend very much on the efficiency, the goodwill, and the punctual arrival of the men from the water board, the removal men, the electricity men, and the gas men.

Yet this strange mixed-marriage of government still seems to work - at least for the Europeans.
