    Three brief stories: Boat Car, Polar Bear and Archer Fish.

    Titles read: "CAUGHT BY THE CAMERA".

    (Boat Car.)
    Various shots show inventor Mr A H Burgess driving his car onto a small boat; the boat is designed to carry the car and run off the car's engine. The contraption floats about on the water; it looks like the River Thames around Richmond (?). Reversing the car makes the boat go backwards.

    (Polar Bear.)
    At an unidentified zoo we see a small polar bear playing with balloons inside his cage and diving into the water of his pool. He is given a few blocks of ice to play with. It looks extremely cramped.

    (Archer Fish.)
    In a tank we see the East Indian Archer Fish shooting water at a dangling spider and finally leaping from the water to catch it (yuk!).
