We Must Build Upwards

Talking of New Towns (Bracknell, remember? If not, see below) here's a terribly informative 1948 film from the Central Office of Information explaining to working class people why they will all have to move and why they should like it.

The Charley character featured in a number of post war COI films, but then there was an awful lot of progress to report in those days. These days, the best you could expect is some muzak over the flashing caption 'you're fucked'.
