The footage in this compilation of cinemagazine stories was filmed with no agenda other than visual pleasure, and it shows. The scenes have been repurposed and edited together here as an advert for British tourism, but the fun was originally had in finding unusual perspectives on a series of familiar landmarks - be they in London, Scotland, County Antrim, or some national sporting staples.
