Tony Mitchell's film begins in London where we see HMS Belfast moored opposite the Tower of London. Passing through Tower Bridge we travel down river to Greenwich and get panoramic views of the city as it was before Canary Wharf was developed. Next we're off to Heathrow, in time to see Concorde take off as well as other classic aircaft arriving and departing. Back in Bromley we see Grandma and Grandad and the kids playing in the garden and an older girl ballet dancing.
