Dashboard Dials Flickering On Engine Startdashboard flickering

It's a mk1 2005 1.8L focus, petrol, 89,000 miles on the clock.
Any ideas? Is it just a coincidence that has started to happen now that the outside air temperatures are hovering around or below freezing?
If needs be I can record a video of what happens and upload it to youtube to give people a better idea of what's going on.
Any suggestions on what's going on and if this is normal would be appreciated! Thanks!

I find it resets the trip computer as well.

Having watched the video, would this still point to a bad battery / duff alternator / loose wire to the cluster??

There was a known fault with the MK1/1.5 cluster where condensation on the circuit board could cause shorting and errors with the cluster.
I seem to recall that another member here recently got a quite of £99 from a Ford dealer to replace his.

If it won't cause any damage or further problems then I'm thinking I might leave it until it gets to a stage where it has to be looked at (which hopefully it won't!). What do people think?
