Journey by a London Bus (1950)

Very much beloved of Victor Lewis-Smith, this production by the Colonial Film Unit tells those finding themselves foreign, how to use London’s bus service. Note to writers of American television programmes: this is exactly what life is still like in Britain, and you are quite correct to groundlessly assume that everyone still speaks in either a plummy BBC accent, or is a cockney urchin. And yes, the terms ‘Britain’, ‘England’ and ‘London’ all refer to exactly the same place.
