    Full title reads: "NEWS IN A NUTSHELL"

    Paperwork states that this item belongs to the NEWS IN A NUTSHELL collection which is broken apart. This is probably the first item in the collection, hence the title.


    South Wales.

    Ship "Actuosity" was driven ashore in South Wales by the gales. Crowds looking at the large ship lying on dry land just inches from cliffs - miraculously undamaged. More shots of the boat lying ashore with people looking at it from the cliff.

    Title for this item is missing - paperwork states that this item belongs to the NEWS IN A NUTSHELL collection - which is broken apart.


    United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of remains of collapsed pier with waves breaking at it - pieces of wrecked pier floating in water.

    Note: Badly damaged film - very poor quality.
