In one sense, this video and the song used as the background have had their run as they've both been around a while. But then again, it is this very fact which gives it new appeal at least to some degree. The waterfront here no longer exists. The film does not capture the new developments because they weren't there at the time of filming, which may have seemed bad timing - at the time, but the passage of time does the wondrous trick of turning this on its head.and captures what was.

However, in truth, this is all incidental to the main reason for the film which was to work with the song in the background to highlight the fact that the City and the Port of Liverpool can no longer be what it was, no matter how many wondrous waterfront buildings and skyscrapers. The Port is no longer the passage to the rest of the world any more, unfortunately. The days where millions of tons of cargo waiting to be unloaded only yards away from massive liners docking or sailing to foreign parts is a thing of the past. Toffs and Timber, Counts and Cotton - all gone.
