27 minute visual summary of everything English - which as usual is very London-biased - accompanied by a voiceover which is just a series of pompous historic and literary quotations about Englishness with no direct explanation of the images. But it's a fascinating selection of sequences, very well compiled and high quality footage. Lots of trains, ships and planes as well. Taken from

- possibly a technical college classroom rather than a manufacturer??

Other stuff:
- royal decapitation was still being practiced in 1970

- Birmingham Bull Ring - much changed now

- the long-gone days when brake-lining brands were important enough to be advertised on the side of buses

(no connection with Lord of The Rings).

'Design Studio' could also be an independant design consultant; Ogle Design, Letchworth or Lotus Engineering, (rather than Lotus Cars) Norfolk.
