    Could British Pathe please supply a more exact date for this visit? YouTUbe posts footage of Johnson visiting London on November 21, 1960. It is sound film in which he says he was in Paris (and the implication is that the visit to Paris was on November 20, 1960).

    Can Pathe verify the date on this film? Was it in fact November 21, 1960? (And is there any film or photos of LBJ and De Gaulle, together??

    Thank you.
