  • Description

    No title, paperwork reads - General Election night. Thousands throng Trafalgar Square to cheer or boo as results were flashed out. London.

    L/S of the crowds under a spotlight, M/S of the screen under an advertisement for the 'Daily Mail'. It gives out pieces of information about the election, one of which was that large numbers of women were at the polling stations before the officials had arrived! The results start to flash up. L/S of the crowds again, they wave. M/S as the camera pans across the crowds looking up at the results, some surge forward. M/S of van with big speakers on it. Various shots of the crowd.
