Look at Life was a regular series of short documentary films produced between 1959 and 1969 by the Special Features Division of the Rank Organisation and screened in their Odeon and Gaumont cinemas - replacing the circuit's newsreel. Universal News, which had become largely irrelevant with the advent of television news broadcasts.
Marvellously concise and beautifully shot, these 'slice of life' colour featurettes - numbering over 500 episodes in total - presented cinemagoers with varied aspects of contemporary British life, and among the documentaries included here are several that vividly capture the vibrancy and optimism of the Swinging Sixties.
Digitally restored from the original film elements, this release compiles 54 memorable films which offer a fascinating snapshot of transport in 1960s Britain, with many unseen since their first screening.
