Council Matters

(1984, 10 minutes)

Freda the cleaner takes the lid off the Town Hall in this animated film about the services provided by local authorities, and illustrates what life would be like without them. As Freda's vacuum cleaner transforms itself into a 'hoovercopter' and flies over the city, she explains the structure of the local authority and the relationship between voter, council and central government.
