This is the type of film that was very popular in the 40s and especially the war years.A portmanteau story featuring a house or an area over generations with a recurring often patriotic theme.A Hollywood example of this type of film is "Forever and A Day".Essentially this film features the same village at 5 separate times in history dating back to 1086 and ending in the Second World War.Basically showing how the villagers won their way through various problems with which contemporary audiences were familiar.Obviously showing that as they succeeded in winning through so must the audience that is viewing it.The problem is that since it uses the same actors in each episode and the themes are familiar it becomes repetitiously and boring.Unfortunately it is just showing its age and alas is now hard going to watch.
