Description: Old Father Thames has seen a good many things in his time, but now some new goings on have started right on the bank of the river. Parliament has decreed it's legal to play chemin de fer (commonly known as "chemmy"), and the River Casino is the first French-style casino of the kind to open in Britain. Arriving by water as yachtsmen could do, our camera crew had come to get an impression of the scene.
