    This material constitutes offcuts/out-takes for the British Motor Corporation's film "Escape from Toil", the finished article of which can be seen in clip 1223.05.

    The monastery referred to in the shots list, (seen between 0:06 and 0:12), is the Madonna del Sasso, a sanctuary and church in Orselina, above Locarno.
