A series of films featuring the re-discovered work of amateur cameramen and home movie makers of the 20s and 30s.
Now and then amateur enthusiasts deliberately turned their cameras on a world around them that they could see was fast disappearing, to them we owe some invaluable records of now vanished crafts. Sometimes the films are propaganda on behalf of fading enterprises like the commercial canal system - and one of them with a wry sort of nostalgia for today, shows just what could be had in 1926 for the price of one penny. series producer DAVID COLLISON

In the maternity unit of a state hospital in the small French town of Pithiviers, Dr Michel Odent has evolved a
philosophy of childbirth which challenges modern medical orthodoxy.
Odent believes that women should respond to their own deep primitive instincts, and give birth in the way most
natural to them. Last year only two out of 1,012 mothers chose to have their babies lying down. The remainder
delivered standing, or squatting, or in a pool of warm water.
At Pithiviers birth is never artificially induced to conform with hospital convenience. Drugs, anaesthetics and forceps
are never used; Caesarians are rare; mother and child are not separated at birth; fathers are encouraged to be
involved; post-natal depression is almost unknown.
This documentary film on the work and philosophy of a remarkable man shows the unit in crisis and in calm in the
course of a busy week.
