Thanks for the heads up, just watched the three Leeds films, they were mostly just processions with very little of Leeds to be seen. The best one was the lifeboats at Roundhay park, two full sized lifeboats with crews rowing on the lake with people diving off the top of the boats into the water, no health & safety then.
