Little America

Documentary, 60min, UK

London’s Grosvenor Square has been America’s home in the UK for over 200 years. As the US prepares to move its emblematic Embassy from the Square to a new building “south of the river”, we take an inside look at the UK-US “Special Relationship” and the events and stories that are being left behind. This is living history – the history of the people and the place that came to be known as Little America.
