Odd little film of London life filmed from BTF office roof, traffic scenes mainly at the junction adjacent The Globe Pub in Lisson Grove NW1 .

"As a training exercise for their apprentice camera operators, British Transport Films used surplus roll end length of film to record the daily lives of their neighbours from the roof of their building Melbury House.". These random bits were all spliced together to make a "film" collage.

Filmed over a number of years...

"From 1967 onwards, trainee camera operators were given scraps of mute Eastmancolour film stock on which to practice their cinematography. From the roof of their Marylebone HQ, shots were taken of the streets below, only later edited together (by unit veteran John Legard) with additional footage taken by experienced BTF cinematographers Ron Craigen and James Ritchie." http://www.screenonline.org.uk/film/id/1283523/index.html
