"London belongs to the people" - a banner proclaims at the end of this film in which locals are "fighting the biggest boys in town” as they challenge the plans of property developers in London. The film also offers a lesson in the potential perils of capitalism and urban development, citing the recently built Euston Centre as "one of the masterpieces of speculative development... a profitable form of gambling."
