A film without commentary showing an imaginative picture of young people of all ages in Britain during the 1950s. Specially composed music by Lennox Berkeley accompanies scenes of babyhood, kindergarten, school and college life and recreation.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
