  • Description

    Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Nderu" is a Burchell Zebra, and the word is native for "Whiskers"! And "Whiskers" is tame - that's the queer point, for this breed has practically never been tamed before." L/S of a doorway of a large house. A zebra walks out of the door and down the stone steps. M/S of the zebra being groomed by his master. The owner picks up one of the zebra's feet and shakes his hand.

    "Nderu" loves the kiddies and will willingly carry them about - especially if she thinks there's some food in the offing." M/S of young boy riding the zebra. L/S of the family in the garden with their unusual pet. M/S of two girls sitting astride the zebra. C/U of boy stroking the nose of the zebra - cute! "Life is easy for her - though probably she pines now and again for her Kenya friends." The zebra's owner plays a game of hide and seek with his pet. He hides behind a tree. Then pets the zebra when it finds him. M/S of the zebra walking away from the camera. He walks up the steps and into the house.
