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.

Enjoyable to see these and how much has changed.
still remember Al NAsr Stores - one of the best toy shops in town at the time near Mannai roundabout...
some memories of places that were virtually unchanged in the early 80's.
Thanks for the memories.
hope you dont mind us keeping a copy and sharing it with others?
Thanks a lot....
It looks like to me, an old treasure is revealed!

Awesome Many Thanks for sharing
Wish i had a Time Machine, would have Happily gone back in the 60s.... :(
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.
Thanx a million dude.. I went into flashback. Will it be possible to upload it on some site so I can download and keep a copy..phuleez!
