The shape of Bedfordshire to come

40 years ago, the Beds County Council Planning Department produced a 21 minute film, outlining plans and proposals for the county in response to the post-war population boom and other local factors.

Watch the film here and see how much of the planning has been implemented, and how much is still relevant today.

Film courtesy of The East Anglian Film Archive, a heritage lottery funded project aimed to preserve our local cinematic heritage. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA).
