    Warm Greetings, Ladies & Gentlemen. I love your website. The video footage it has on Kenya is priceless, out of this world. Any chance you guys could be having video footage of Kenya\'s Tom Mboya meeting then Sen. John F. Kennedy in the USA on 26th July 1960? Also guys, since we can now view video footage here at the British Pathe website with browsers that do not support Flashplayer, any chance that the next step is that members of the public e.g. yours truly, will also now be able to download screeners? Finally guys, please pass my warm greetings to Mr. James Hoyle. Best Regards, Michael M. Kamau, Nairobi, Kenya.
