The world into which I was born

This clip was posted on boing boing but I only watched it because it's from the BBC news on the day I was born. It makes me feel illogically nostalgic.

We've had a similar slightly crazy posh old lady staying with us this weekend, an old friend of my grandparents from Kensington. When my nephew dropped his toy phone and the batteries fell out, she picked it up for him saying in cut-glass tones "Oh, it's absolutely maddening, I quite agree", and my brother and sister-in-law got the giggles.
