Easter in Old England

“The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.” The opening line of Leslie P. Hartley's novel The Go-Between applies perfectly to this remarkable little video from England on Easter Sunday, 1946.

If you live in Britain, or have merely visited England recently, you will be astounded by the sheer scale of the changes that have taken place well within a single lifetime. And we're not just talking about the clipped, old upper class accent of the narrator.
