Playground Express

Kids face the closure of their Brighton playground but fight back to reclaim it, with a little help from the iconic Volks Railway

1955 17 mins


Could anything sound more miserable than the Society of Organised Fun? Certainly not to the children barred from their favourite local playground by the Society's irritable, child-phobic president. Arriving tightly packed and singing in unison on board Brighton's iconic Volks railway, the children's spontaneity wins out. They do also have a little help from comedy actor Peter Butterworth, 10 years before his first appearance in the Carry On film series.
