London is a city of contrasts – we wanted to curate a small selection of videos that show the city off to its best – we’ve come across some amazing short films online and these are our favourites:

London Bus Tour

Shot by Moritz Oberholzer sitting on a bus with a HD camera and a DIY 35mm adaptor – beautifully edited, great soundtrack it shows London life as it really is  – the people, the places, and life just passing us by…

Finally, comes this offering from the BBC – this is a more typical take on London – a little bit of a travelogue and a slight ode to CSI – but still it looks great

Are we right – what do you think?
