Films arrive in US, 34 years too late

Boxes containing educational films about the Netherlands have arrived back in the US town of Holland, 34 years after being borrowed by two American universities.

The films, including Jan – Boy of the Netherlands and The Netherlands, Blueprint of an Urban Society, were loaned to the universities by the former Netherlands Information Service which was based in the Michigan town.
