Focus on - Stevenage

Tony Collman

This 14-minute 1965 documentary news feature from Anglia Television’s news magazine programme Focus On looks at life in the new town, with a tour of its industry followed by street interviews with residents about their life here and the so-called “new town blues” and then a look at what’s on offer for young people, at Bowes Lyon House in particular and an upbeat summing up from presenter Michael Partington.

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.
