A Council Way of Life

Here's a beautiful documentary, One Below the Queen, about the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate in Swiss Cottage, London. It's made up from tons of warts-and-all interviews with the residents, from kids to pensioners, and really brings out what living in the estate must be like. It also includes a fascinating interview with Neave Brown, the sparkly-eyed, refreshingly unpretentious architect. A wonderfully generous approach to film-making and the estate.
