    At 00:28 there's a slate telling us that filming was for the Thames TV current affairs programme "Today".

    The slate also details the date of filming as being 29 September 1975. This enables the clip's current date range of 1970-79 to be altered.

    Note that the final 24 seconds of this clip are frozen.
