So, with a wealth of material on the internet I thought it was time to point of some of the choicer material out there. There'll be a different selection each month and it'll range from features to shorts or charming little scraps. This month's choice:   

Happy Family (1939)

This is a curious little item. It's a short (9 mins) released by the Ministry of Information in June 1939 to persuade the British that war really was on the horizon and they'd better get ready. Directed by Walter Forde, and with a cast that includes John Mills, Edmund Gwenn and Eva Moore, it's an interesting glimpse at a precise moment in British history.
