Very enjoyable, by the way, not sure about 'ordinary' computers, but watching on a mac it wont enlarge to full screen if click on the full screen icon, but clicking on 'vimeo' bottom right it goes to vimeo and then enlarge. ...also can then click to HD.

Perhaps David, James or Geoff can identify this for us?
Are these any more help?

I think the one on the left is Mr Punch, not sure about the others!

Sorry! On a less facetious note it's a wonderful video, thanks for sharing. I've watched it through twice now, wonderful stuff, very clever. And no I'm afraid I don't know whose show it is.

photoshopped

I had a look closer at this. There is a french edit of the original footage on you tube. The Punch scene has been vignetted as you can see:

The sign behind says 71 Shaftsbury Avenue. The image in Simon Smith's montage sets it outside 75.
Here it is outside 75:

Trouble is they do change the street numbers and, as in the case of the present 71, they alter the shop fronts.
I notice you can get a DVD of the original film from the BFI.
It has been my experience that I am always true from my point of view, and am often wrong from the point of view of my honest critics. I know that we are both right from our respective points of view. - Gandhi (Having a bob each way.)
