Kenneth Branagh as Isambard Kingdom Brunel!, massed Victorians! What else can we expect!

Gears and levers, rising smoke stacks!

Sufragettes! Where are the 3rd Foot and Mouth when you need them!

I spy steeple jacks !

Bloody huge steam engines! A Wilf Lunn Bicycle?

Men in Goggles!

AIR KRAKEN ATTACK!!!

No its only the Olympic Rings swooping in phew!

Dancing Victorian Nurses and Doctors! No sign of men in straight jackets though.

Having a nice Pimms now, seems appropriate.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang child catcher!

Massed Air Assault By Mary Poppinses!

Rocket packs!

Young gentlemen in proper headwear!

Does anyone know if there is full video of this somewhere? All I have been able to find on YouTube has pixel issues.
