• Short Summary

    Stretched, angled and squashed views of London's Embankment.

  • Description

    Titles read: "LONDON as it isn't! (And, we hope, never will be!) - Vividly and inaccurately described by LEONARD HENRY, of BBC fame."

    Various shots of traffic moving along the Embankment and Bank area in London, taken from an angle so that the vehicles and road appear very narrow and slanting then squashed wide (as if seen in the hall of mirrors!). Trams, buses and cars go by.

    Visuals cut out at 01:05:40, but Leonard Henry's humorous commentary continues to end, talking of policemen, what Teddy Brown does in his spare time and everyone going on the 18-day diet - a shame the footage is missing!
