Banking on People
DVD1991 45 Minutes
Ethical banking in Britain.
Britain's first ethical bank, Mercury Provident Plc, was established in 1974. Depositors explain that it is important that their money is being used positively supporting what they value and believe in. The film also includes visits to six projects that Mercury has helped finance, including Henry Doubleday which promotes organic gardening, Weleda UK (natural medicines) and the Ecological Trading Company which imports ecologically sound timber
Made in 1985 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless and indeed to the forefront now in 2012!
