The GREEN GIRDLE
PROPAGANDA. Encouraging Londoners to make use of the surrounding 'Green Belt' areas. Nobody in London is far from some kind of park or commonland because of the Green Belt around London (52). Wimbledon Common (70), Hampstead Heath (84), Epping Forest (104), Box Hill (121) and Ivinghoe Beacon (137) are all part of an area held in perpetuity to be free from building development. Londoners can leave the wartime restrictions of city life and enjoy a taste of the country- side in such places. Horse riding, cycling, birdwatching and painting are among the activities they can pursue here. Some prefer simply to enjoy the natural beauty of the open spaces (315). They return home ready to bear the pressure of wartime life with renewed strength (375 ft).
The music credit on the film is to Richard Addinsell. The William Alwyn Society, however, claims that Alwyn wrote the score. A copy of the soundtrack matches a score written by Alwyn, held in their archive.
