My brother and I were at that show we were 7 and 8 at the time but I remember the Jaguar and the Morris Minor.

I wonder if you could post the link to this clip please. Syd

^ it's difficult to place url's without the BB Code embedding the actual link, I've tried one way

The url for that particular video is https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=378932546563634 (apologies to Darren for my pre-emption)

It's from the "Official Facebook presence of the BBC Archive" in Facebook https://www.facebook.com/watch/BBCArchive/

I noticed this one which shows David Bowie speaking to Jeremy Paxman in 1999 about the "unimaginable" effects on society the internet was going to have https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=984177948738986 (quite an astonishing prophecy)
