Village of Finchingfield Awaits Ban The Bomb Marchers

1961 , Finchingfield (Essex)

Anglia Television news item from a village close to RAF Wethersfield.

A mute Anglia Television news report on the village of Finchingfield, Essex, as it awaits an influx of anti-nuclear demonstrators for a planned march on nearby RAF Wethersfield. The picture-postcard village of Finchingfield is shown as a quiet, serene place, but a more sinister undercurrent is clear from the crude graffiti daubed on the town's walls and bridges. The report concludes with a broad vista of the village, panning across to a road sign which points to RAF Wethersfield, home to United States Air Force fighter squadrons since 1951.
