    Christchurch, New Zealand.

    Title reads 'Students Have Bike Race in River'.

    Various shots of the students of the Canterbury University parading down main street in Christchurch, New Zealand, with floats and dressed in funny costumes. The students collect money for charity. Various shots of the students holding a cycling race with a difference - the course is a shallow river and the students choose to carry the bikes instead of riding them. They are followed by some strange floating crafts and the students even perform a Maori dance in the water.

    (Comb.F.G.)

    Date found in the old record - 21/05/1964.

    Wrongly dated - this must be the 1960s (mention is made of the Beatles and Elizabeth Taylor).
    Love the title!
