    Titles read: "Caught By The Camera".

    Various locations.

    At Raglan Road Crossing in Monmouthshire we see a one-woman station. A woman comes out of a building and opens the level crossing gates. She is the Station Master for this tiny station and also the signal woman, level crossing keeper, booking clerk and porter. A one-carriage train pulls into the station; a woman holding a child waits on the platform.

    Various shots of an artist, Mr Ispen (sp?), writing a tiny dance programme in a grid the size of a stamp. He does this without the aid of a magnifying glass. Other pieces of miniature writing are shown; the Lord's Prayer the size of a sixpence and the same in six different languages, the size of a penny.

    In Reigate we see brief shots of people arriving at a countryside windmill for a church service.

    On the River Thames in London we see the view from a boat approaching Tower Bridge (the bridge is opening to let us through). We then see a small house near Tower Bridge and a plaque telling us the house has the Wall of Roman London as its foundations. M/Ss of ships in dock on the Thames, seen from the house.
