ITN Archive discovers rare footage of Sting and Stewart Copeland

Almost 30 years ago this week pop band The Police released their debut single, 'Fall Out'/'Nothing Achieving', in May 1977, on their own label Illegal Records.
ITN has now discovered original footage of the young and then virtually unknown Sting and Stewart Copeland, pasting up posters advertising their single on London’s Kings Road that very year.
The film is part of a reel of footage shot by an ITN cameraman who, by chance one Saturday afternoon, went down the Kings Road to collect some stock footage of punks.
The footage shows Copeland pasting The Police posters and Sting holding them as they fixed them to the wall. This previously unseen footage was shot well before The Police released their debut album 'Outlandos d'Amour ' in November 1978.
