    "Location Unknown / Unclear." - the location is the Ivy House, North End Road, Golders Green, London.

    The clip's current date range of 1940-49 is inaccurate, Pavlova having died in 1931. A new date range of 1920-31 would clearly be more appropriate.

    "Pavlova sitting in her garden with elderly man" - the man looks likely, (though not certain) to be Victor Dandre, Pavlova's manager and companion.
