    "men in period costume" - they're members of the Dickens Fellowship, (still going strong in 2012).

    At 00:28 the group stop outside The Bull Hotel on Rochester High Street, which features in The Pickwick Papers.

    "work by Harold Youngman" - the piece is called "Artemis".

    "Gilbert Bayes" - his piece is called "Fire Engine".

    "Big warehouse fire in Docklands" - the fire is at St George's Wharf.
