Synopsis:
The BFI continues its tour of Britain on film with this intoxicating anthology of shorts devoted to that most traditional of national institutions: the public house. 'Roll Out the Barrel: The British Pub on Film' is a unique and fascinating collection of 20 films, made between 1944 and 1982. From wartime documentaries intended to keep up flagging spirits to independent productions exploring the permissive society of the 1960s, this five-hour collection provides the perfect measure of cultural change in Britain from the perspective of bar and lounge.
