I thought one or two snippets in this short film were interesting. It is a documentary about the Suffolk London overspill town of Haverhill made in 1969. The estates featured don't look quite so nice any more. Unfortunately no sound on this preview.

A typical Local Authority Film(boring).None of the "overspill" Towns look any good today.
What is not recorded is how many People wanted to move back to London.In the case of Tower Hamlets,the Residents were promised they could return to the new Houses-that the Council were building.That never happened.The usual comments were-nice House(all the Facilities etc.)but nothing like the old Neighbourhood.The Locals hated the newcomers,so animosity was there straightaway.I knew People that were shifted out to Basingstoke,Peterborough,Welwyn Garden City,Thetford etc.,they all hated it.
