The Independent Culture

In the 1950s and 1960s, John Krish made numerous short documentaries about British life, and the four compiled here are all either deeply moving, sparklingly funny, or both.

Whether paying tribute to London's defunct trams or detailing the lonely Sunday of a widowed pensioner, Krish highlights poverty and injustice, but he still makes you yearn for the polite, pre-ironic era when there weren't any Red Bull cans on the pavements.
