In early August 2015, the Associated Press began releasing loads of archival video on YouTube. A large part of that collection comes from British Movietone, which has uploaded thousands of videos of all kinds, including many newsreels. One gem among them, This is London, comes from 1981. It's a sort of video time capsule for London as it was in the late 1970s and early 1980s, comprising plenty of stock footage of all the sights, royals, and ceremonies you can imagine.
If you've been to London, this is a great glimpse of what it once looked like. If you've never been, why not check out London circa 1981?
