Land of Promise

Just arrived in the post - 4 DVDs of films by 'The British Documentary Movement 1930-19950'. Many of these films cover industrial subjects and several were made in a building at the end of Bennett Park in Blackheath - as I remember it there is a small exhibition in the lobby of the private flats there now.
The only one I have watched so far is 'Children at School' filmed, not in Greenwich, but in the nursery of the Gas Light and Coke Company flats at Ladbroke Grove - itself built in the tank of a disused gas holder.
