In the 1960s the UK Government, through the Central Office of Information (COI), produced a number of films for overseas distribution. Essentially designed to promote British industry and values abroad, Roundabout was one of the most popular of these cine-magazines, with its selection of topical stories for the Asia market.

The BFI has collected all the Roundabout films from 1963 to produce a unique and fascinating glimpse back to Britain and its place in the world 50 years ago. Consisting of over 30 films, highlights include a visit to the Royal Mint, a trip around a British Doll factory and a look at modern architecture in London, Djakarta and Saigon.
