    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    At Dymchurch in Kent we see men on a field playing a game of Goal Running. It involves two teams of men, running in pairs (one from each team) around a kind of rounders pitch. The object is to get round without being touched by your opponent. Several shots of the game in progress. Some men fall over and are easily touched - meaning 5 points to the opposite team. One man almost pulls the shorts off his opponent!

    At Erkatz in Russia we see various shots of trainee vets being taught to treat animals at a special hospital. A pig lies on a table to be given ray treatment. A horse has a silver instrument run over his coat (not sure what this is for). Another horse is seen hanging in a sling, with sleepers over his eyes and his hooves attached by chains to the sling frame. The sling is suddenly tipped up so the horse is lying on his side - it looks very bizarre! This allows a vet to operate on any part of the animal.

    At St Louis Zoo in Missouri, United States of America we see two Wreathed Hornbills, the only ones in America, being taken out of boxes and put into their cage. They look rather lonely on their bare tree.
