Overview

"Dullness, darkness and boredom? No!" Instead it's action-packed on the home front with civilians on high alert to support the war effort - that's when they're not rediscovering parlour games or visiting the local library. The film's director, Mary Field, was a pioneering educational and natural history filmmaker in the 1920s and went on to head the Children's Film Foundation in the 1950s.
