I'd like one of those funnels! Classic definition of an "expert": man holding clipboard. Anyone count how many VW Beetles were overtaken? Excellent clip.

May not be the same angle as those in the film but near enough.

Great little film. I also watched the winter of 1963 report that came on after it, the current little flurries seem a little tame in comparison. I can vaguely remember it, mainly the snow drifts that were twice as high as me :o Don't remember missing school because of them either and my dad always seemed to make it to work in his traveller :D

Back in the late '60's my school decided that it would be good to teach us all archery. Loads of us stood around the target while incompetent archers shot arrows at it. We could see the arrows coming towards us and moved a bit if they seemed off target.
None of us thought it was a problem at the time but I suppose it was a bit dodgy.
