    Narrowing down this clip's current date range of 1970-79, the cinema behind the policeman is showing the film "Herbie Rides Again", meaning footage MUST have taken place after the film's release date of February 1974.

    Bit more to help date it. At 20 seconds in a white National Coach goes by in the traffic.

    Their website states that 'National' branding of coach services started during 1972 with a new 'all white' livery for vehicles. The brand name of 'National Express' first appeared on adverts during 1974 and was then introduced onto vehicles during 1978
