    A clapperboard at 0:22 tells us that this footage was shot for an edition of Thames TV's documentary series "A Place in the Country".

    The clapperboard also reveals that the director was Robert Fleming, and the Camera Operator was Michael Rhodes - the only edition that featured this pairing was the one filmed in Wallington.

    Filming took place in January 1973, enabling a reduction of the clip's current date range of 1970-79..

    Here are three links confirming those various facts:

    I should confirm that the location of "Wallington" is the country house in Northumberland, (not the village in Oxfordshire).
