Britain is on the verge of a new era. Gleaming office blocks are replacing bombsites. This is an age of television, Minis and new supermarkets. London is the centre of fashion and new music with young people at the forefront of creativity and culture. Where Soho gambling clubs are run by criminals whose activities also make headlines. The period is still one of contrasts, from the gritty docks and the glamorous Miss World contests through to the equality of music and the constraints of the class system. This film is a panorama during the first half of the Sixties seen through the eyes of the nation's capital city.
