First proper post so apologies if this is in the wrong section.

Back in the days of clockwork TVs (mid 50's) there was a short film shown on TV, on a loop, with clips of newsreels. The clips included:
The Coronation
The ascent of Everest
The Blackpool/Bolton Cup Final
England winning the Ashes
The Boat Race, when one of the boats sank.
My mate claims there were two more but I think that was it. Anyone help?
I've a pint resting on this, so cheers (hic) if you can help.

No pint for me. My mate claims that his extra two were the four minute mile, agreed. But he also claimed footage of a Grand National, no evidence. So we've called it all square.
Thanks for your contributions.
