    Title: "Gales and floods ended the wettest Year on record - let's hope. 'It ain't a gonna rain no mo' in 1925".

    Floods at Shepperton.

    Point of view shot taken from a slow moving boat of a flooded street - water laps around the doorsteps of wooden houses. M/S of the flooded front garden of a wooden house - the 'beware of the dog' and name sign ('Fairview') are only just above the water.

    A few seconds of spacing follows.

    M/S of a horse and cart packed with passengers wading through the water in a flooded high street, a church spire is visible in the background. Various shots of the horse and cart passing the camera. M/S of a flooded street of terrace houses. Various shots of a crowd, mostly of children, standing on a raised bit of pavement (the road around them is flooded). L/S of people and cars walking up a flooded suburban street.

    Panning shot of rapidly flowing flood water, the trees sticking out of the water bend in the wind. Various shots of trees sticking out of flood water, in the background is a railway bridge or viaduct, panning shot to a man walking along a dry bit of road above the flood water. Various shots of flood water rushing under the arches of a bridge. Panning shot of flooded parkland, people walk up and down a dry bit of road (as before). More general flood shots.

    End title: "The PATHE GAZETTE - THE ORIGINAL AND LEADING BRITISH NEWS-FILM - WILL SPARE NO EFFORT OR EXPENSE IN 1925 TO SATISFY ITS MILLIONS OF PATRONS".
