A complete screening of the 1964 television documentary following the lives of a number of people in Bristol as they try to live and work in the city, writing and participating in the arts. Featuring ACH Smith, Bristol writer and playwright, Derek Balmer, current President of the Royal West of England Academy, and Tom Stoppard among many others, it is a unique view of the city in the early 1960s, brilliantly filmed and edited at a time of social, cultural and economic change.
