The program ends in Kuwait, the nation which has moved from the technology of ancient Egypt to that of the modern world in a single generation
Distant voices, still lives by Terence Davies( visu )
1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
"An impressionistic view of a working-class family in 1940s and 1950s Liverpool, based on Davies's own family. The first part, Distant voices, opens with grown siblings Eileen, Maisie, and Tony, and their mother arranged in mourning clothes before the photograph of their smiling father. Soon after, the family poses in a similar tableau, but for a happier occasion--Eileen's wedding. While relatives sing at her reception, Eileen hysterically grieves for her dad, and recalls happy times of her youth. Tony and Maisie's memories, however, are more troubled. ... In Still lives, set (and filmed) two years later, the siblings are settled in life, but not all happily. For Eileen, relief from her drab existence comes only when singing at the pub."
