  • Description

    Titles read: "NATURE'S MIRACLES".

    Location of events unknown.

    Various shots of beans germinating in soil and growing over a period of three weeks, seen in time-lapse photography. The beans waggle as they grow, explained by commentator as one side of the stem growing faster than the other - amazing!

    We then see wheat kernels germinating in soil and pine leaves opening, both in time-lapse footage. A man cuts a tiny leaf of a plant growing in a goldfish bowl and puts it under the microscope. We see a greatly magnified view of the leaf (actual size is 1/8 of an inch) as we travel from the right to the left of it - it is full of millions of moving cells! Commentator explains how photosynthesis works.
