Salvador Dali

Here is a fun clip of Salvador Dali, he is actually wearing a ‘Visnews’ sign around his neck.
Visnews was a news gathering agency established in 1957 by the BBC and was originally called British Commonwealth International Newsfilm Agency (BCINA) before being renamed Visnews in 1962.
It aspired to create independent, world news to be made available across a broad spectrum of news outlets.
Later it was part owned by the BBC, NBC and Reuters, by 1992 it was solely owned by Reuters and renamed Reuters TV.

Annie Lennox

Annie Lennox has an amazing voice, I once met someone who would pre-record songs for her in a very soulful style for Lennox to emulate. Does that job even have a name? Can anyone help here?
Anyway here she is on the ‘Tube’ a very popular British TV program which I really, really hope will return to the screens.
It launched a lot of careers for the likes of Paula Yates, Jools Holland, Muriel Gray etc etc

J.R.R Tolkien at Oxford

I love ‘Lord of the rings’ and everything Tolkien, so when I came across this very rare clip of him at Oxford I nearly jumped out of my seat!
I even visited Oxford recently and stood in the same place as he did in the clip.. sigh.. 🙂

Banksy revealed?

Whilst having a look through the London News Network archive footage library tapes I came across this intriguing clip of ‘Banksy’ from 2003.
He was giving an interview on his latest ‘animal art’ exhibition in Dalston.
Can anyone confirm that this is in fact Banksy?
