    The three vehicles featured in this clip are all Talbot cars.

    "Mrs Wisdom" is Elsie Wisdom, also known as "Bill".

    The other 5 people involved in the Alpine trial, and therefore likely to be the people seen at the start of the clip, were Tommy Wisdom, Mike Couper, George Day, Hugh Eaton and Ben Higgins.
