    Titles read: "Caught By The Camera".

    Various locations of events.

    Near Sandwich in Kent we see a tiny railway station with the name of 'Poison Cross'. A toolbox attached to the station fence carries the words 'Poison Sandwich'. A nearby signpost reads 'To Ham / Sandwich'.

    Various shots of a huge spherical diving machine on a boat. The machine is designed to withstand several tons of pressure. The person inside moves mechanical arms on the outside to pick up a coin. The whole machine is then lowered into the water while a crowd of people watch. (Location is probably United States of America.)

    At a zoo in California, United States of America, we see a very tiny and extremely cute white lion cub. He sits in a cage with his mother, then poses with a little girl (she wears a kind of Shirley Temple outfit) and makes a tiny roaring sound. Very sweet!
