The Camera of Nat Crosby and the Songs of Ralph McTell Childhood
' Sundays as a rule
Us kids went to Sunday School, And Mrs Adlam said,
Angels stood round our bed
To keep us safe from dark - right through till day began,
And we used to lie awake just to try and see one,
And though we never saw one anywhere,
We heard them softly singing in the air '.
RALPH MCTELL 's songs evoke the world of his London boyhood, and the documentary camera catches its reflections in present-day Plumstead.

Nelson Xavier Maria Gladys
An ex-soldier, appalled by the apathy of starving villagers in the face of persecution and the loss of their only food reserves, tries to incite them into action.
This early example of ' cinema novo' powerfully conveys the message that the people can do nothing against political oppression and military force.
