HAS York changed much in the past 45 years?

You can judge by yourself by watching this short film of a young boy, Eric Coates, giving a tour of York for a short film for the BBC.

Eric, who was keen on local history, recorded the film in 1976 for popular children's show of the 1970s, Why Don't You...?

In the film - which is part of the BBC Yorkshire's archive - Eric begins at Bootham Bar then walks along the walls and up Shambles and along Stonegate.

There are some obvious pointers that the film is from the 1970s - Eric's brown flared trousers for starters, and also the cars on the street, including those going past the Minster.
