Images of rubbish on our streets and waterways, accompanied by the words of a famous Shakespeare speech, from Richard II.
[00:00:00] PUBLIC INFORMATION FILM: we hear the words of a famous speech from Shakespeare’s Richard II:
“This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle. This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars. This other Eden, demi-paradise. This fortress built by nature for herself against infection and the hand of war.
“This happy breed of men, this little world. This precious stone set in a silver sea, which serves it in the office of a wall or as a moat defensive to a house against the envy of less happier lands. This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.”
