Home movie footage of Doha in the 1960s
By Glasney

I have updated the "Will someone photograph my old house?" thread but thought that others will enjoy seeing something really quite rare- movie footage my father took of Doha in 1968. I am uploading this over the next weeks and in several parts but the first are available to view on You tube now -"Doha in the 1960s". Over the coming weeks expect to see further parts with archive footage of the Shell Lodge,old airport, town centre as well as ariel shots taken from helicopter flights over Qatar.

mozzie: I believe in the " Trees part " the people who did this amazing vid were taking a trip back from the Levant region. Probably Syria or Lebanon. All the lovely mountains and greenish landscape, looks so much like Lebanon.

When the plane is landing there are so many trees. It's practically a forest! I'm surprised. We need more forests to suck up the CO2 from the Landcruisers now.
