Local adverts, long dead, some never to be forgotten, live again! Produced for use in any UK cinema, the local-ness extends only to the on-screen details of the companies included. Voice-overs are in RP English, scenarios opulent or city-based. Nonetheless, they are an interesting record of businesses of the period, often charming or unintentionally amusing. Llanrug's DIY store promises “You'll have the job done as you planned it”. Indeed, admits the bodging amateur!
