    Titles read: "BONNY BUNNY BUSINESS" (Dublin issue).

    Watford, Hertfordshire.

    The Duke of Norfolk, Bernard Marmaduke Fitzalan-Howard, is seen at the opening ceremony of the Hertfordshire Rabbit Show. He releases a carrier pigeon with a message attached to its leg.

    Various shots of rabbits on show at Hertford Rabbit Show. The judges hold them up by their ears and examine them. One is an incredibly fluffy breed - angora? It looks like something used to polish wooden floors. Some rabbits look like they would rather be elsewhere - a dark one keeps trying to make a break for it. Nice shots of children petting bunnies.

    In another part of the show we see pigs being judged in a contest. Commentator refers to one pig as a "nosey porker". A little boy is lifted onto the back of a prize-winning pig in a pen.
