City of lights

This is footage from the City of lights video. As far as I know, it hasn't been released on DVD yet. I hope that oversight gets rectified sooner or later.

I first saw this on STV one night, back when I was about 18. That was more than half a lifetime ago. What happened to the intervening years?

Anyway, this is a great video.  It mixes up archive footage from old Scottish documentaries along with more contemporary footage.  My favourite bit of archive footage is the "D'ye do any dancing Jamie?" scene.  It's classic.

I've tried hard to find all the songs from the show, but I couldn't find some of them.  I hope this gives you a good taster, though.
