'Moslems in Britain - Places' - 1964 film

BFI, Watch Moslems in Britain - Places online From 1964: "Visit the places important to London's Muslim community - both those born in the city and those newly arrived - in this informative short documentary, sponsored by the Foreign Office and the Central Office of Information. The film offers the Arabic-speaking viewer information and reassurance about where they can find community and resources. Among the locations visited are the Islamic Cultural Centre in Regent's Park, the Shah Jehan Mosque in Woking, and the British Museum's oriental room, for a glimpse at its collection of rare copies of the Qur'an."
