On her sightseeing tour of London, the filmmaker visits Portobello Road with the bustling scenes of thriving market stalls and traders. The camera's wandering eye showcases the variety of goods on offer, and we're also treated to some diverse and interesting shots of people shopping in the market. Punks amble through accompanied by a few disapproving looks, whilst street performers entertain the crowds at one of the capital's most popular tourist destinations.
