Sound (French), b&w, 13 min. Seeking to allay any fears that increased productivity might entail loss of jobs, the film contrasts primitive conditions of labor with those of modern times, pointing up the improvement in life and labor that machines have wrought over the last hundred years. Perhaps useful for discussion even today. 13 min, 1951. Produced by the Crown Film Unit, Central Office of Information, London, for ECA U.K. and the Economic Information Unit of the British Treasury.
