From Marco Kristen

Dear Mr. Woodcock,

while surfing the web looking for Circus Williams/Gunther Gebel Williams stuff I discovered the following website with very interesting videos of English circuses of the 40's,50's and 60's.
I found a couple of videos that might be of particular interest for you and the readers of your blog.
One showing Ringling's arrival at Madison Square Garden in 1966 http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=71606

and another one of Clyde Beatty being stranded in California 1946 during a railways strike http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=54549

I enjoy your blog every day and thank you for your work. Keep up the good work.


Marco Kristen
