The driver navigating Stevenage's ring roads, its outer and inner suburbs, meanwhile the passenger filming the journey. Shot at two frames per second between 11am and 12.00 on 14th September 1970, this Stevenage Development Corporation-sponsored film was made to establish the efficiency of the town's road network system, and incidentally documents a time-lapse travelogue of England's first New Town, that nestles between two Garden Cities.
