  • Description

    Slough, Berkshire.

    Various shots of the high wire act of Francois and Angelo at a circus or funfair. Several stunts are seen. First a man walks across the wire with a hood over his head. He holds a long pole for balance. The crowd watches from below. Francois and Angelo walk along the wire together. One sits on the shoulders of the other.

    We then see the men walking towards each other on the wire. One lies down on the wire and the other steps over him, balancing on one foot as he does so. In the final stunt, one of the men rides on a motorcycle along the wire while the other hangs from a trapeze below. They then swing over and over the wire.

    Programme for the Slough and Windsor District carnival on file.
