London Line No. 113

If your interests happen to include rainwear, concrete in Africa, science in Sevenoaks, and gbedu drum music, then this is your lucky day...

Cinemagazine 1966 14 mins


Bringing different aspects of swinging sixties London to Commonwealth audiences in Africa, this cinemagazine is a curious mix of hepcat fashion shoots, and nerdy teenagers in a Sevenoaks science club. Look out for presenter Lionel Ngakane's delightful segue from an Ambrose Campbell drum performance - "Ooh, solid man, real solid" - to a story about concrete.

London Line was a COI magazine programme produced in four different versions for distribution in different parts of the Commonwealth. The weekly series was produced in black and white from 1964 to 1966, and followed by two colour series.
