Merry Christmas from Retro To Go and Charlie Brown

Well, seeing as it's Christmas Day, we're having a day off from posting (except this message obviously) but we'll probably be back Boxing Day as this isn't our job - we actually like writing about these things!

So a Merry Christmas to all our regular readers. And if you're still not in the Christmas spirit, enjoy this vintage Charlie Brown Christmas on YouTube - you'll be well into it by the end.

Classic Clip: London's 60s concrete architecture

Nice clip, under the title Out Of Time (and accompanied by Chris Farlowe's rendition of that very tune), this is a tribute to London's modernist concrete architecture (mainly) of the 60s and 70s.

Have a look and decide whether this is great architecture or a collection of the capital's great eyesores...

Classic Clip: Learn to swim

Dave was obviously the "Ace Face" in the late 60s and early 70s - footballer, musician, scooter rider and owner of enormous hair. Unfortunately, he kept losing his "birds" because he couldn't swim.

Yes, another public information film, this time informing us that if you can't look the part in the pool, the girls will hate you. Watch and enjoy...

Classic Clip: Crossing the road with Kevin Keegan

Footballers weren't always in possession of loose morals, in the 70s they wandered our streets, helping the nation's youth cross the busy roads, in particular, those trapped between two Austin Allegros.

Here, we see Kevin Keegan in action, dashing to the assistance of two hopeless pedestrians. If only today's players were as public-spirited...

Classic Clip: Bad Beatles medley

For a 1973 Beatles TV Special, someone thought it a good idea to wander round London and get the good people of the city to sing some of their favourite Beatles tunes. Badly (but not intentionally).

Listen and cringe, but enjoy some great period fashions...
