This is a documentary film history
of the England's Ealing Film Studios,
from its beginnings in 1902.
It follows the studio's
successes through the 1930's,
World War II dramas, the well-known
'Ealing comedies' with Alec Guinness,
and the BBC's television
productions. At the end we see the
resurrection of Ealing with the release of
The Importance of Being Earnest (2002).
The narration is by
Daniel Day-Lewis, who by virtue
of his mother, Jill Balcon, is the grandson
of Sir Michael Balcon.
