Star Item
  • Description

    Welling, Kent.

    Various shots at naturalist Richard Ford's shop, as two boys, Graham Walder and Peter Trigg, look at the displays of sea shells and eggs; stuffed animals and pinned butterflies are on the wall. The boys inspect a giant crab and a tropical starfish from North Carolina.

    A customer sits looking at a tray of creepy-crawlies; Richard Ford hands him another tray of insects and through a magnifying glass we see a Fiddlers Beetle. From another drawer Richard takes out a Strix moth - the largest in the world - from South America. The two boys look at a tray of glass eyes; M/S and C/U of a stuffed Wild Cat from Northern Britain.

    Note: on file are notes on the footage shot at this shop, Watkins and Doncaster.
