Stevenage's Cycleways and Pedestrian Shopping Centre

Tony Collman

In this three-minute series of excerpts from a 1966 newsreel about Stevenage New Town, a reporter from an unspecified foreign country, gets enthusiatic about Stevenage’s cycle path network and pedestrian shopping centre.

Locals may find it amusing at the end when the reporter says she is leaving and walks off camera in a direction they at least well know doesn’t lead anywhere…

The film, taken from the University of East Anglia’s East Anglian Film Archive is available from the archives of the British Film Institute, as part of their free content.
