C/U of a statue of Francis Drake near the bowling green at Plymouth Hoe in Devon; commentator talks of how Drake made the game famous by refusing to interrupt a game as the Spanish Armada approached.

High angle M/S of bowls being played on an indoor bowling hall at Butlin's Holiday Camp in Bognor Regis, West Sussex; panning right to show players and a crowd of spectators at the other end of the hall.
Various shots of players, mostly older people, coming forward to bowl; two Redcoats are seen in the background (flapping arms around); the spectators applaud as someone scores.
Snooker champion John Pullman is seen lying down on the matting 'green' and hitting a white 'jack' with a snooker cue. More shots of players bowling; including John Pullman bowling a 'wood' normally (with hands, not cue). The elderly man John is playing with measures the distance between two 'woods' and the 'jack' presumably to see who has won.
