Canterbury Christ Church University film lecturer Tim Jones is carefully building up an archive of footage showing the city and wider district in years gone by.

He’s appealing for more images from the 60s, 70s and 80s, but still has a healthy array of videos from that time.

That includes Kent playing the touring Pakistanis in 1962.

It was shot by Edward Hicks-Diamond at the St Lawrence Ground. Click here to see the footage.
