    Titles read: "LONDON - CYPRUS PEACE IN SIGHT".

    London.

    Exterior shot of Lancaster House. We see Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd, Governor of Cyprus Sir Hugh Foot and Archbishop Makarios arriving.

    Slip pan to M/S of Makarios walking down the steps of a plane after landing at London Airport on the previous Sunday. He greets officials and waves to countrymen as he walks along. At a press conference we hear him saying he looks forward to a sincere co-operation in the interests of the entire population of Cyprus, so that with the help of God, happier days will come to the island".

    Cut back to interior of Lancaster House where talks are in progress around a square-shaped table.

    Note: further information and notes on file.
