Crystal Palace History - You Tube

Just discovered this on You Tube: Places - Lost in Time: The Crystal Palace by Ruairidh MacVeigh

Excellent and well worth watching. Some pictures and facts I'd not come across before.


EDIT: the link I posted seems to have gone dead
Here's a new one:

The presenter certainly has the gift of the gab and it's certainly a good introduction. I'd recommend this to anyone who hadn't come across the CP before.
My only gripe is that he's neither accurate nor fair regarding John Logie Baird and that leaves one wondering why. Could it be that the presenter is reading from others works?
