    Cuts from a commercial made in 1998 to advertise the Evening Standard newspaper.

    01:48:41 Aerial L/S of London at night. Lloyd's building (?) seen lit up with blue lights. Camera moves towards Lloyd's building.

    01:48:52 LCD display of a CD player seen in extreme C/U. Lights move as various sound levels change. Floating camera moves around the CD display as volume levels are moved up and down. Shot goes in and out of focus.

    01:49:50 Fuzzy C/U of a lava lamp. Camera pans down to show the top of a man's face in extreme C/U. Television images are reflected on his glasses. Floating camera moves backwards and forwards over the scene. The man suddenly snatches off his glasses as if surprised or shocked at something he has seen on television. He puts his glasses back on. Then takes them off and puts them on again. He looks very concerned or worried.

    01:51:07 Moving aerial shot of the Lloyd's building (?).

    01:51:33 C/U of very pretty blonde who is smiling and looking down. As the camera begins to move she looks up and into the camera. Floating camera moves around her, there is a wine glass in the foreground. She wears a bright blue outfit and sits on a orange sofa. Shot suggests success, glamour, romance, flirtation, sex etc. Various looks and expressions are supplied by the actress: sultry, intrigued, pouting, smiling, serious, etc. as camera moves backwards and forwards.

    01:53:15 Camera pans slowly across orange cushion to C/U of woman running fingers through her blonde hair. Camera pans backwards and forwards across this image. She is presumably deep in thought whilst reading her newspaper.

    01:54:18C/U of man in spectacles seen earlier. Camera moves across his face showing reflections of police show on television in his glasses. He frowns.

    01:55:01 C/U of his hand. He wears a silver ring on the middle finger of his hand and he twists it round with his thumb - presumably to represent worry or being deep in thought. He then drums his fingers on the table. The table seems to have a light inside it - rather like a light box, for visual effect presumably. He taps his fingers.

    01:55::52 High aerial shot of Canary Wharf at night. C/U of the top pyramid roof of Canary Wharf from the air, camera moves around the building and tilts up and down.

    01:56:23 Unusual shot of the woman seen previously. Artistically blurred and shot from ground level. She lifts up one leg then eases her left shoe off with her stockinged right foot.

    01:57:11 Aerial shot of St Paul's Cathedral. Camera moves around it.

    01:57:36 C/U of man with spectacles. Television images are seen behind him.

    01:57:55 C/U of glamour puss seen earlier looking down and to the left.

    01:58:04 Aerial shot of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament at night. Camera moves around the clock tower, zooming in to the face of the clock then travelling over the top.
    01:58:49 Floating camera across face of man in spectacles seen earlier. He takes off his glasses as if shocked. Television footage reflected on his glasses. Lava lamp in the background.

    01:59:46 Aerial shot of London at night, Thames, bridges, camera moves in to buildings on the edge of the Thames - a residential area, could be Docklands. As the camera moves in to a building of modern flats a man comes out onto a balcony and stands looking up at the camera.

    02:00:32 C/U of the man on the balcony. He looks frantic and mouths the words "I just don't understand". He goes inside the flat. We can see the blonde woman behind him, she mouths the words "I do". Then lifts up the Evening Standard smiling smugly. She then says "Sorry" and shakes her head (presumably she has fluffed the shot).

    02:00:52 M/S aerial shot of the Lloyd's building at night. Camera moves around it. Then there is a swift zoom out to a L/S. Camera continues to move around the building.

    Note: shot by New Era and given to Pathe for commercial use.
