• Short Summary

    A little travelogue of, yet another, "one of the most beautiful villages in England".

  • Description

    Broadway, Worcestershire.

    Two old ladies are walking down the street. Cut to a line of old, nice looking country houses. Succession of shots of the details, a stylish house number, old fashion street lamp, bush trimmed in shape of a tree... People are seen gardening, arranging flowers, walking.

    A girl displays baskets with fresh apples and eggs outside village shop. High angle C/U shot of the 'real food' awakens nostalgia for the days when food tasted as food. Lovely fresh bread and jars of Cotswold honey are seen in the window.

    Although the village has no famous history, it has prosperous antiques shops - tells a voiceover. Several antique shops and antique statues are seen. An elderly couple is looking at the window of one of the shops with large selection of silver cutlery. The film ends with a long shot of the village streets.
