Britain's Countryside - The Variety of Landscape to be Found in the British Isles

'This film shows such beautiful areas of Britain the Highlands of Scotland, the Lake District, the farming lands of Kent and Sussex, the chalk cliffs and Downs of the South, and the fens of Norfolk. It shows also the progress in the country–progressive types of farming replace old methods, town and country are linked by communications, and electricity is carried to farm and village. It emphasises, too, the accessibility of Britain’s countryside, and its importance as a playground for the townspeople.' [1]
