June 1983 marked a bitter and disappointing time for Bristol-representing English parliamentarian Tony Benn; that was the month Benn unexpectedly lost his government seat thanks to the abolition of his constituency - following nearly 30 years in office. The film Tony Benn's Defining Moments constitutes not a documentary about Benn's life per se, but a 40-minute preview for an ITV West documentary about his life. It intercuts telling archival footage, home movie footage of Benn's family, and spoken extracts from Benn's diaries.
