    Visible in the opening panning shot are the Grossmunster church, the Wasserkirche church and the Munsterbrucke bridge.

    At 00:18 we see the church of St. Peter.

    Seen at 00:22 is the ceremony called "Burning of Old Man Winter".

    Given that this is a May Day ceremony, it can be fairly safely assumed that the exact day of filming is 1 May 1948.

    The figure atop the bonfire is apparently called the "Boeoegg".

    And further to my previous comment in May 2012 it looks like in fact it CAN'T be safely assumed that the date of filming of the clip would have been on May 1st 1948, as the 2014 festival took place on April 29th.
