This fascinating documentary tells the history of post-war Fleet Street, the home of the British newspaper industry.

“There used to be a tradition in Fleet Street newspapers called ‘banging out’. It involved an employee, on the day he retired after a life-time’s stalwart service to his chosen rag, being walked by his colleagues through the presses in the print room. As he wandered towards his rendezvous with a carriage clock, the printers serenaded him by whacking the metal benches with their hammers, beating out a ceremonial slow-march to mark his departure.”
