An eye-catching green title card plastered with “to Ruislip via Harrow” appears, before giving way to a shot of a street in Harrow, stretching out with tens-upon-hundreds of citizens gathered to peacefully protest the presence of US nuclear bombers in Ruislip. Women, men, police officers and even their pets can be seen gathering under the sea of banners to scrutinise military policy in the name of peace.
