I just stumbled across this amazing film - part of a collection from the British Council’s archive, recently released online to the public for the first time.
What is it about this unobtrusive game? What is its magic? For magic it must surely be that makes men sit and watch and dream of past occasions and of wistful yearnings never quite fulfilled.
