  • Description

    A short animated trailer film encouraging Schoolchildren to help in the Scottish potato harvest.

    Animated cartoon potatoes are seen under ground waking up and getting ready to be harvested. Their leader (wearing a Scottish tam O'Shanter hat) is telling them how important they are to the country's food supply.

    An urgent telegraph message comes in 'SOS - Scotland = 50,000 Schoolchildren Can Save Us From Rotting - SOS.".

    Pan up to show children's feet walking across the field. The potatoes cheer because they know they will be harvested. The leader is pulled from the ground.

    End titles read: "Let Your Children Gather The Potato Harvest".
