Life in Adelaide, 1966

Okay, I confess this one is self-indulgent. I hope it appeals to people overseas who are curious about life in Australia. As it was in 1966. 

The film was made by The Commonwealth Film Unit, known today as Screen Australia. It presents a picture of life in Adelaide in the mid 1960s, and was intended (I suspect) as a come-on to potential immigrants. So much has altered in the last 45 years that I won't even try to list the changes.

LOL. I have sent this link to some ex-pats in England. They are thinking of relocating in Adelaide. This might just tip their thinking. The wrong way...
