1980s Video: "MAC" of The Daily Mail

Here's some footage from Thames News of Stanley McMurtry, better known as "Mac," the cartoonist at The Daily Mail.

In this undated news piece (but my guess is that it's from the 6pm Thames News broadcast on Monday, October 17, 1983), we see politician Ken Livingstone receiving what looks like an original cartoon by Mac. Livingstone is noted in this ceremony as a "Fleet Street politician most lampooned" by cartoonists, joining the ranks of others, like Margaret Thatcher.
