    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In London we see various shots demonstrating a special torch that fits in the bottom of a gas-mask case to enable walkers to shed a tiny circle of light on the ground when walking home in the blackout.

    We then see brief shots of a cycle valet service in a small town in the South of England (exact location is not specified). A man on a bike pulls up and leaves his bike with a worker who is seen cleaning and repairing it.

    In Turin, Italy, we see a new bicycle that is partly propelled by the movement of the saddle and handlebars. A man rides the bike along a road, looking like he is having a fairly easy time of it. Another cyclist on a normal bike behind him is working pretty hard to keep up with him.
