    Also seen during the clip is a sign for "The Norman Conquests" at the Apollo, and "The Chairman" at The Globe. The Adelphi is hosting "A Little Night Music", whilst The Vaudeville has "Double Edge".

    "Exteriors of theatres including the Drury Lane" - it's actually The Theatre Royal, on Drury Lane. It's hosting the musical "Billy".

    Reducing this clip's current date range of 1970-79, all of the plays being advertised in this clip took place in 1975.
