    The airliner tragedy reported in the first story here occurred on 9 December 1936.

    The crashed plane was a Douglas DC-2.

    Amongst those who died were the former Prime Minister of Sweden, Arvid Lindman, and also Juan de la Cierva, inventor of the autogyro, (as can be seen in Pathe clip 502.24).

    In the story entitled "Edinburgh", two of the "elderly men" seen are the Lord Lyon King of Arms Sir Francis Grant, and The Gentleman Usher of the Green Rod Sir Robert Gilmour.

    The location for the Smithfield Cattle Show in the story entitled "Islington, London" is Earl's Court.
