Starring Alec Guinness and Joan Greenwood.
In this superlative Ealing comedy, a humble laboratory dishwasher, Sidney Stratton, produces a miraculous invention — a fabric that cannot get dirty and never wears out. Being politically naive, Sidney is amazed that no one wants his invention; but being also an idealist, he is determined that the world shall have it.

It's 1990. By now we were all supposed to be working less, with the microchip making boring jobs obsolete. Yet there are more jobs than ever, people work longer hours and the pressure is on. 9 II 5 5 returns to keep you abreast of the changing world of work. Susan Rae goes to Sheffield, once the great steel heartland of the north, but now bidding to become a post-industrial city in which music will provide more jobs than metal bashing. Geoff Small reports from Southampton on workaholic mania. John Withington asks what the changing pattern of work means for Britain.

When the pictures were shown in Britain, they sparked a nationwide appeal. A month later, reporter Jenny Craddock returned with a second convoy to see what could be done to help.
