    The title should read AAA Championships White City.

    "E MacDonald Bailey" should read McDonald Bailey (christened Emmanuel McDonald Bailey). The name needs changing in tags, too. He can be seen at 00:33, winning the 100 yards.

    "Flying Officer A Wint" is Arthur Wint. He's seen twice during the clip - firstly at 00:07 after winning the 880 yards, then again at 00:12 after winning the 4440 yards.

    Sydney Wooderson is seen at 00:46, after he's won the 3-mile race. Footage of him running in that event can be seen in clip 1556.17.
