British filmmakers knew from the earliest days of the cinema that the British countryside was one of their greatest assets. Following a pictorial and pastoral tradition they reinforced the mythology of the British rural idyll in a way peculiarly suited to the moving image. Other traditions may have inspired them to explore the seamier side of British life in the towns and cities.
