"The 1930s were the years of the British documentary movement, and are often regarded as the golden age of the British Cinema: the period when film related most closely to society and when it seemed most to matter in the nation's intellectual life. It was a period dominated by three names: Grierson, Rotha and Wright. In Documentary Diary Paul Rotha gives a first-hand account of those years." -- from the front fold over panel blurb.
