Summary: Conversational interviews between an unseen commentator and a group of builders working on a factory in the country (living in wooden huts).
Description: Interviews are used to convey several themes: the various jobs and living conditions of the men themselves, a refutation of their feelings that they are cut off from the war (commentator shows what "a single minute" of production means in the factories they completed earlier - Britain not only strengthening herself, but aiding Russia - and how some actual structures help, eg airfield runways), consideration of the potential if the concentrated effort devoted to war was available in peacetime (one of the builders quotes a speech by Wavell: "Think what a world we could make"); commentator says this is what we are fighting for.
