BRICKS AND MORTAR-BOARDS
PROGRAMME 1: PLACES FOR PEOPLE

PROGRAMME 2: BUILDING FOR BOOKS
Though commissioned by Trinity College as a fund-raiser for the Berkeley Library and with extensive discussion of the history, architecture and collections of the Old Library, this film also provides a fascinating, lushly-photographed picture of student life in the 1950s – at work and at play – and lauds the arrival of women and students from many lands.
