Britain at Bay

Peace & War, 1937-40


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Free projection of films onto the NT flytower.

Taking up themes from Rattigan's After the Dance, these short films capture Britain's transformation in the late 1930s – from rural idyll to total war. English Harvest (1938) shows the countryside unchanged in centuries. But Spare Time (1939) feels somewhat bleaker as Britons attempt to enjoy their hobbies – from pigeon racing to amateur dramatics – despite the storm clouds on the horizon.
