    This is from WAY before 1961. The Comet is a Comet 1, in service with BOAC 1952-54. The BOAC Argonaut etc have white tails, they were repainted blue in 1956/57 and the Ambassador/Elizabethan was retired by BEA in 1958/59! The Central Terminal Area was shown in the background being contructed and judging by its condition, I would guess it was from pre-1955.

    "MS BOAC coach" - the vehicle is a Commer Avenger, (Reg. No. MXU 237).

    Definitely not 1961 and there are no shots of Handley Page Hermes planes landing. As previous commentator says there were no Comet 1s or BEA operated Elizabethan aircraft in 1961 so this must have been filmed between 1952 - 1954 when they were withdrawn. Moreover by 1961 BOAC had a different livery.
