    Hertfordshire.

    "There aren't any film studios in this picture - these girls from Welwyn are just hunting for holly for the festive season." Girls run towards the camera followed by a horse drawn cart. The girls all wear overalls - they are possibly farm workers or kennel maids or something similar. M/S of them moving away from the camera down a country lane.

    "Next to catching porcupines, holly collecting is one of nature's most prickly pastimes - " M/S of the girls picking holly from the hedgerows. One girl is high up in a tree. Low angle shot of the girl in the tree. Various shots of the girls as they throw holly into the cart. The girls help their friend down from the tree. M/S of the girls running towards the camera carrying bunches of holly. "There's a good time coming..." (As the song says)." The girls arrive at a grand house and walk inside carrying the holly.
