    With the rubble of the Battle of Britain still littering the streets of London, this movie takes a few minutes to paint an image of a countryside around the City that offers a few hours respite from struggle. It looks forward to the development of London's Green Belt, a ring of rural bliss around the urban center that the busy city still offers.

    And if you're going to paint a picture for the movies, who better to handle the camera than Jack Cardiff, that most painterly of Technicolor cameramen? He had proved his mettle with a series of portraits of India and the Near East in travelogues. In this one, he offers the movie goer a view of a bright, lovely, autumnal world just a bus ride away from bomb craters.
