    Perfect description of modern London, to be quite honest.

    One of the best telly adverts ever, in my opinion.

    Her companion on the trip was Lionel Bart.

    Georgia Brown also sang a couple of songs in the Holmes vs the Ripper movie A Study In Terror. John Neville made a good Sherlock Holmes imo.

    I know this one as well.

    I just had a look on her wikipedia page

    It says she died at 58, in 1992, from complications of emergency surgery to remove an intestinal obstruction.

    Apparently she was on the same episode of The Ed Sullivan Show that also had The Beatles first live USA appearance.

    Also, she was on Star Trek The Next Generation, twice, as Worf's adoptive mother. I've seen the episodes many times but it never clicked that it was Georgia Brown.

    The show was part of the One Pair of Eyes BBC TV series. If you can use BBC's iPlayer you can watch the Georgia Brown episode there. It's a shame that it appears to be the only episode of One Pair of Eyes that they have. I'd like to see more episodes. It started in the 1960s and I bet the BBC themselves wiped some of those early episodes.

    Here’s another similar thing on YouTube.

    One pair of eyes, Georgia Brown- Who are the cockneys now. 1968

    “Georgia Brown visits her old childhood home in Whitechapel”

    Along with some of the locations seen, there are street performers in the film/documentary that I saw myself in the early 1970s with my family. I also used the gents toilet in Holborn that's shown, with the cisterns made of glass with goldfish inside.

    I first saw it early 2000s and downloaded it as an avi format video file which I still have, made possible when broadband first became available.

    Back in 2010, Dan Cruickshank had a little series (actually, 2 episodes of 15 minutes each) titled The London Nobody Knows on Radio 4. He visits places that were in the original film/doc. It's on iPlayer.

    Grimey and atmospheric, it captures the period perfectly.

    It’s a classic Richard. Highly recommended to anyone who hasn’t seen it. It’s recently been mentioned by George on the Richardson thread.
