'And finally, not everyone’s being doing topical. In fact, here’s the rather lovely 6 Oxgangs Avenue devoted to the history of the development of the area, this week highlighting how the block of flats came into being. Could have been prompted by Who do you think you are? Or just a timely reminder that not everything worth blogging about is in the here and now.'

Hi Peter and Ruth, I work for a BBC1 television series and I am trying to find the owner of this video. Do you happen to know who it was that filmed the clip which has been posted on YouTube? I'd also really like to speak to the organiser of the event and to any eyewitnesses, if you email me on I can provide more information about the programme.
