  • Reducing this clip's current date range, seen at 00:08 is a banner proclaiming "Smash the Industrial Relations Act" - this act only came in to force in 1970, and was repealed in 74. The clip's date can therefore safely be reduced to 1970-74.

    The clip's location is currently undocumented - however at 00:01 we see a shop with the name "Ken Munden (Turf Accountant". This might possibly enable someone to identify the location. (My guess is that it's either London or Berkshire, given the Trades Unionists in attendance).
