    Note: Some nice camera movements and little montage in this item - very unusual for Pathe News!

    There is an excellent Colour Pictorial item on the same subject (CP 093, Pathe Mater tape PM 0055) which enables viewers to see various exhibits in colour - they look spectacular. Strongly recommended watch.
