    Jersey, Channel Islands.

    Scenic shots of Jersey showing beautiful coastline and harbour. Several street scenes and shots of goods in shop windows as commentator talks of the island being a tax haven. A couple look in a shop window at a display of watches and clocks. Other window displays show cigarettes and alcohol - with prices seen.

    Several shots at a car dealer's of cars and their prices (no purchase tax). A man in overalls at a Shell garage fills up the petrol tank of a car. Pan to the petrol pump with price '3/5 1/2'.

    A middle-aged couple look in the window of an estate agent. Several shots of the houses for sale, all with prices of over £31,000 - pretty steep for 1969. Various shots of expensive-looking houses in Jersey. Commentator talks of wealthy mainlanders who have settled there. A new legislation that might be passed on the island would mean that only very expensive properties would be available to newcomers.

    More shots of luxury houses, one with a swimming pool in the garden. Interior shot shows the living room of a house with huge windows looking out onto a wonderful view of the coastline. A man sits reading an armchair with two dogs sitting beside him. General view of beach and promenade with palm trees growing as two men walk along.
