Scope and content

A sponsored film made for the Australian Council of Trade Unions proposes a Commonwealth solution to the housing problems facing families living in inner-city slums. Contrasts crowded and dilapidated city tenements with better homes in the suburbs, illustrates the financial considerations of families deciding to build a home and features highlights from the 1957 NSW People’s Housing Conference. Narration, spoken by Leonard Teale, lists reasons why proper housing is not affordable: lack of finance, insufficient loans for home building, high interest rates and too few rental dwellings being built. Members of building and other trade unions gather at the headquarters of the ACTU for a national conference held to determine a new housing policy and program to address the housing crisis.
