    Could I please be licensed to use this footage with acknowledgements in a local history video I am making, as I live near the bridge I have registered. Ann Howard

    sorry I've managed to get this clip in the basket. I've registered. Now I cannot for the life of me see how to obtain a license to copy 75 seconds onto my own video in production. Help! Ann
