London in the 1960s, life was bustling, people swinging, dancing to the hip sounds of the day. Wearing iconic fashion, driving classic cars, watching Technicolor films, listening to fab pop.

At the time of course it was just normal life. Perhaps there was a new sense of freedom, and a new excitement for the future, but there were also cold war fears of nuclear annihilation, the assassination of JFK, the Vietnam War and the Biafran famine, part of another war.
For most, life was not much different to the two or three decades before. Many lived in small apartments, sharing bathrooms, exchanging the sounds of daily life. For most people, dressed in unremarkable clothes, with no car, riding buses or the Tube, life was just routine. They worked hard, for not much pay, they married, had children and tried to have a happy life.

A short film from the 1960s, with a quirky narrator, commenting on the fashions and lifestyle of the time.
