The narrator was the late, great Bob Holness of Blockbusters ("Can I have a 'P' please Bob") fame..... :) S4.

Of course! Doh

I thought I recognised the voice!

A day without learning something is a day lost and my brain is hungry. Feed me please.

Same trouble with the .AVI file: I just renamed it to .WMV and it worked for me.

Great to see old footage like this. I like the narrator who sounds a hell of a lot like Jack Hargreaves or is it just his manner :-)

I'm PM you some detailed instructions, but as a general helper to anyone else who has trouble with it - you may need to download appropriate codec's in order to watch this. It downloaded as a .cgi file for me, but played fine in Media Player Classic (available at http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/)

Hi All,
I was browsing for background information on another topic (Aylesford Sand Co Ltd, probably post to follow!), when I came across this fantastic video footage, largely from 1949.
I half expect this to move, as it touches on many other posts made here.
Hopefully it will be useful to some of you :)

Video 1 (34Mb) is Rochester Castle to Allington Loch, highlights include the flying boat Golden Hind
Video 2 (45Mb) is Allington to Yalding, highlights including a very different looking Maidstone!
Video 3 (34Mb) is approach to Tonbridge, this section include more modern footage, but still very interesting.
