A news agency scoops the sinking of the Admiral Graf Spee
This drama was made largely as a form of propaganda and portrays the early events of the Second World War from the eyes of a British newsreel production company. One scene depicts a group of reporters working on a newsreel about scientific progress and there are two shots that accompany this, one of London trams crossing Westminster Bridge at night, and the other showing a view of London Charing Cross station with a collection of pre-war Southern Railway suburban EMU’s present. In addition to this, there is later glimpse of London buses outside Morden Underground station.
