Archway Road Movie Group. The first of two newsreels campaigning to prevent the building of a major new motorway in London, following fifteen years of protest and three 'public' inquiries. Made by members of the community, the film reveals the appalling living conditions on the Archway Road, the fallacy of the motorway-building 'solution' and the big businesses that benefit from and demand such motorway schemes despite enormous human and environmental cost. - R.P.
