    If you get a spare half hour just have a look through some of these lovely old videos.
    I Just thought that I would put together a collection of old historic and informative videos that are to be found on internetville, Generally they are old footage or educational so if you have found a video that is interesting just post it here and I can add it to the list. Most of the old ones are from Pathe and you will need to watch an advert the first time you visit but its worth it to see the way we were.

    Cheers for posting the link mate it is lovely video it shows everything as almost idyllic, they were expanding the industry in 1963 at a speed of 100% every ten years...who knew hey.
    Sadly the links in the original post of archived videos above did not survive the forum upgrade so I am not sure if it is worth adding any new ones but you can ask admin or a mod to doi it...cheers for the link :)
