    The line seen between 10:47 and 11:29 is the Prime Meridian at Greenwich.

    The red ball seen at 11:47 is sitting atop the Royal Observatory at Greenwich.

    In the Crypt of the RNC Greenwich, (after 4:53) bopping away are members of the WRNS Officers\' Training Course 2/73 and the Lieutenants\' Greenwich Course. The Lt with the \'Sailors Have More Fun\' T-shirt is Laurie Hopkins. I was one of the cadet wrens! Date: 14th June 1973.
