London to Brighton in 4 minutes (1953)

London to Brighton in 4 minutes (1953)

(5:22) BBC use trick photography to take you on a 700 mph journey to the seaside. From the days when TV was live and programming hectic. Often when one program finished, the next one was not ready, and so the gap had to be filled. The BBC developed a number if interludes to fill these gaps, this being the most famous one. Next video is a remake, in 1983.
