St Albans & Harpenden Review: Man seeks owner of Christmas home videos from the 1990s found in St Albans shop Man seeks owner of Christmas home videos from the 1990s found in St Albans shop

Someone may get their Christmas memories back, as lost video camera footage from more than a decade ago has been found in a St Albans camera shop.

Ian Rance found about 20 minutes of family Christmas footage on some second-hand film he bought at Clark’s Camera Centre in Holywell Hill.

He said: "I was very surprised to find it, no one had played it for years and years. It almost felt like I was spying, but I’m glad I found it or it would have ended up in the bin."

The footage from 1991 shows two dark-haired children opening presents under the tree on Christmas morning whilst a baby is being fed, and an elderly couple playing with the children.

Mr Rance said: "I remember being like that when I was a lad, excited by the presents.

"That’s what it’s all about - the joy of the day. Perhaps it will brighten someone’s Christmas to see it again."

Mr Rance hopes to return the footage to the original owners.

He said: "I would be more than happy to return it and send them a DVD copy to play."

If the footage could be yours, email zforsey@london.newsquest.co.uk
