Worlds Apart

Britain on Film, Series 2 Episode 8 of 10

Throughout the 1960s, the Rank Organisation's series of cinema documentaries Look at Life captured on colour film myriad aspects of social and cultural life in Britain. Their film-makers also travelled abroad, visiting countries like Australia that were of special interest to British audiences, or to places in the news, including Chile during a state visit by the Queen, or to places of increasing relevance to Britain like Brussels, which was establishing itself as the centre of Europe's new Common Market.

Britain on Film features some of the best of the footage captured by Rank's film-makers during their foreign excursions, including rare colour images of the reindeer herders of Lapland and film of the young Dalai Lama living in India following his exile from his native Tibet.
