Markets of Britain
Boing Boing proudly presents “Markets of Britain,” a documentary discovered by Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz from the archives of a great and underappreciated British filmmaker named Lee Titt, who also never existed.
Is that Jack Hargreaves – from Southern TV’s “Out of Town”: it’s been years since I’ve seen that, unless it isn’t him, in which case it has possibly been longer or shorter.
great gorgeous goodness once again peter!
Absolutely brilliant! Please tell me what that music is? Have you got any butter for me too?
That is indeed the great Jack Hargreaves from Out of Town. Fantastic! I’ll never forget the way he used to wave various implements at you on his show, and follow it up with a gentle ‘Do you know what that is?’
Ah, great days.
yeh jack at Ringwood market , Hampshire ,
I must admit I found the sequence with the butter mildly erotic, other than that a truly loverly film.
When I was at infant and junior school, the teachers would ring a murderer’s bell to indicate that playtime had finished.
Jack Hargreaves! Bring him back! Dig him up if necessary. And Paint Along with Nancy while we’re at it. And Words and Pictures Halloween special.
I think I’m going to have to have a lie down now.
Absolutely superb. God you’re talented.
Lee truly captures the heady excitement of the British Market. If he’d managed to throw in a shot of some dead rabbits hanging up and dripping blood onto passing children I would have been transported straight back to my trip to Wareham Market in 1972. Maybe he kept that for a sequel… Here’s hoping!!
Lovely…Blue whales at market…Taller than I remember.
the murderer’s bell made me choke on my drink, so great!!
Those mini-emus looked tasty.
