Highlights from the BFI National Archive's extensive collection of films from our own back yard are projected onto the Flytower of the National Theatre

Brief City (Jacques Brunius, Maurice Harvey | 1952 | 19 mins) is a joyous tribute to the creative vision of the 1951 Festival of Britain, an event that easily combined pioneering design with seaside postcard vulgarity.

In We Are the Lambeth Boys (Karel Reisz | 1959 | 52 mins) members of Alford House, a youth club in Oval, share their hopes and frustrations.

The journey comes full circle in Project 1 (Yohan Forbes | 2009 | 7 mins), a skateboarder's odyssey from the Thames Barrier to the South Bank.
