Day and Night

DirectorPeter Harvey
One line synopsisOne of a series of short productions made by young black film- and video-makers, a dramatized view of London life in the 17th and 20th centuries.

Town Crier walks through a market ringing his bell and calling "London, thou art the flower of cities all…", and recites some of the rules of the Apollo Club – "Let none but guests or clubbers hither come … More for delight than cost prepare the feast." The Crier becomes a poet and recites – over montage of London sights with dramatised sequences of people in offices and pubs, jazz musicians, policemen, down-and-outs, etc. – verses about rich and poor, law-abiding and criminal, and so on. Credits.
