Description

This film takes place in Bradford city centre in the early 1970s. It captures various people in the city going about their daily business.

The film begins with scenes on the city streets of Bradford showing people shopping, walking along the streets, getting on buses etc. The filmmaker seems to concentrate on members of the minority communities, specifically people of the Asian and Black communities, when filming these scenes around Bradford.

Towards the end of the film, a group of students (possibly members of Bradford College) gather for a short dramatic arts street performance. They have gathered in the city centre, and many intrigued passersby pause to watch the performance.
