"Wise people are hastening to Walton-on-Thames". A distinctive and effective advert for the virtues of doing one's Christmas shopping in the charming Surrey town, with its "three fine streets of equally fine shops". Using a striking combination of animation, comic sketches, direct address and charming location shots - including High Street, Bridge Street and Church Street - this is both unique and a curiosity.
