    Narrowing down this clip's current date range of 1970-79, the police van in this clip is a "P" registered vehicle, meaning the earliest the film could possibly have been shot was August 1975.

    Thanks. Can anyone spot any other clues to narrow this date range down further?

    LUL 849P - This registration was first registered during the period August 1975 to July 1976.

    Paddington Green Police Station was opened in 1971 and was designed to deal with terrorists suspects.

    My best guess is that the film crew was filming at Paddington during the mid-seventies when London was subject to a series of terrorist bomb attacks.
