We step back to the early 1980s and a time when the workingmen's clubs of the North East were still doing a roaring trade.
It was 1982 and our video clip, from the North East Film Archive, shows popular entertainer Scarlet O'Hara performing in a packed Tyneside concert room.
There is cigarette smoke, clinking glasses and lots of laughter as Scarlet - real name Pauline Petty - runs through her routine and, once off stage, reflects on her life growing up in Newcastle's West End.
The clip comes from a documentary that was originally broadcast on Tyne Tees TV called Northern Scene.
Pauline enjoyed plenty of success around clubland, topping the bill at her own nightclub in Whitley Bay, and even appearing as a landlady in the television series Byker Grove.
Workingmen’s clubs have endured difficult times in recent years, but for decades have been integral to the social life of North East communities.
The rise of the clubs began in Victorian times and, at first, they were intended to be educational and teetotal.
However, working men - then as now - enjoyed a pint, and booze soon became available.
Today, under the umbrella organisation of the CIU (the Working Men’s Club and Institute Union) there are around 1,800 affiliated clubs across the UK.
Until 2004, in fact, the CIU had its own beer brewed by the Federation Brewery in Dunston, Gateshead.
Between 1974 and 1977, the ITV variety show The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club reflected the popularity of the local club.
Featuring the likes of Bernard Manning and “concert chairman” Colin Crompton, the fictional club was actually based in a Manchester television studio.
In recent years, it could be said that workingmen’s clubs have suffered from an old-fashioned image among young people, and many have closed.
Anti-smoking legislation has also no doubt had an impact, and it was only in relatively recent years that women were allowed full CIU membership.
Our Scarlet O'Hara video clip is taken from the DVD, Newcastle on Film, which has been produced by the North East Film Archive.
Presented and narrated by ITV Tyne Tees News' Pam Royle, Newcastle on Film pays homage to life on Tyneside and features lots of brilliant archive film footage.
