    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Various shots of a small twin-rudder single-engine experimental aircraft with a pusher propellor being rolled out onto a runway, taking off and in flight. Location of events unknown - could be Finland?

    Several shots of canaries in rows of cages at a Continental exhibition hall. C/Us of canaries as we hear them 'singing along' to 'The Monastery Garden'. A cameraman lifts off the front of a canary cage and films the birds with a motion picture camera. Good shots of canaries; one of them looks like he is wearing a toupee!

    In South Africa, we see white farmers playing the traditional game of 'Ukskai' where clubs are thrown towards a peg in the ground to try to knock it over.
