Secrets of Life films

Secrets of Life: Films

The educational film is for those who wish to learn, the Secrets of Life is designed for those who wish to relax. But the Secrets reach those whom the educational film can, at present, never touch. They widen the outlook of very ordinary people who take a char-a-banc ride to Scarborough, who hike out of Glasgow, who paddle at Margate or keep a bowl of gold-fish in a London flat. World Film and Television Progress, Vol. 3. No. 3 (1938)
