    Similar footage to cut story showing astronaut Colonel Borman visiting No. 10 Downing Street and speaking to people in the crowd.

    Different shots of Borman posing with Harold Wilson on the doorstep after the visit. The Borman family shake hands with the Wilsons before getting into their car.

    General view of the American Embassy and the Bormans arriving. They walk inside where US Marines (?) stand to attention.

    Colonel Borman arrives at a press conference or awards ceremony. He makes a mute speech at the microphone then presents an award to C James Gill and others. He shakes hands with several men on the stage. C/U of certificate reading 'The National Aeronautics and Space Administration presents the Public Service Group Achievement Award - Apollo 8 Communications Network - C James Gill, CMG, OBE, British External Telecommunications Executive'.

    More shots of US Embassy. More footage of Borman and family posing inside No. 10 with the Wilsons. A silver dish is presented to Wilson by Borman (or could be other way round). A certificate or framed paperwork is presented by one to the other (not sure which).
