That's brilliant – but as a Bath-born lad I picked up a bit of a cheat at the end. When the car's arriving at 'the outskirts of Bath' it's actually already in the centre (the Lamb and Lion pub is on the left) and you'd already have gone past the abbey. Great to see the road layouts in the year I was born, some of which are drastically different now: the Jag's going the wrong way down what is now a one-way street with the Guildhall on the left and the final roundabout – Orange Grove – is now no longer a complete roundabout.
I think that might (not sure) be a browser setting because it does not auto-play for me here on this board or at the original page.This is one of those videos that play automatically as the page loads. People imght not want that.
I'll show that to my Mum. Her parents were from Byker.Brief documentary piece on a photographer documenting the 'dying community' of Byker. I love the soft Geordie accent she has mixed with her own.
Wow - it does too!An auditory illusion.
Each time you play it, they say, it will sound like it's getting higher in pitch.

I'll stick a warning on it just in case.
I do actually think that's pretty great, but 'a perfect replica of a 1980s video store' it isn't.Bloke builds video shop in his basement for nostalgia
To be fair, he does say in his admittedly over half an hour video in the link that it's a 90's video shop, a few people in the talkbacks have also asked the same question about where's his blue section lolI do actually think that's pretty great, but 'a perfect replica of a 1980s video store' it isn't.
There are a number of films on display that weren't released in the 80s.
I think the ultimate aim would be to choose your favourite year and re-create a shop using only releases that would commonly be available then: so 1986 with a prepoderence of films from that an the previous few years, plus 'classics' re-released.
And I have to know: does he have a 'blue' section?
I used to glance over the aisle at the women in lingerie at on the box covers and feel my pulse quicken. My excuse being that they were near the horror section, which blended into things likes 'Critters', 'Tremors' and 'Gremlins'.
Brilliant. If money were no object, I'd have bought the lot.Space Photography auction at Sotherbys October 2019
If I had the money ... "Moon by Rutherfurd" Glass Lantern slide 21st Dec 1891 and the Lunar Orbiter II Oblique view into the crater Copernicus 24th Nov 1966 (going on-site and enlarging the photo results in a tumescence in my Gentlemen area).

Source: https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms15112In the developed world, extreme prematurity is the leading cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity due to a combination of organ immaturity and iatrogenic injury. Until now, efforts to extend gestation using extracorporeal systems have achieved limited success. Here we report the development of a system that incorporates a pumpless oxygenator circuit connected to the fetus of a lamb via an umbilical cord interface that is maintained within a closed ‘amniotic fluid’ circuit that closely reproduces the environment of the womb. We show that fetal lambs that are developmentally equivalent to the extreme premature human infant can be physiologically supported in this extra-uterine device for up to 4 weeks. Lambs on support maintain stable haemodynamics, have normal blood gas and oxygenation parameters and maintain patency of the fetal circulation. With appropriate nutritional support, lambs on the system demonstrate normal somatic growth, lung maturation and brain growth and myelination.
Spoiler seems to stop moving image working!I'm not sure that this qualifies as 'good stuff online' or not, but certainly interesting. Since 2017, scientists have been experimenting with keeping fetal lambs in artificial wombs. Naturally, the intent is that someday premature human babies will be able to be placed into such 'wombs' in which they will develop normally. Science continues to amaze me.
