    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for stories in Colour Pictorial - CP 636. The original stories are also on Pathe Master tape *PM0401*. Reel 2 of cuts is on *PM0427*.

    Cuts for story LASERS in CP 636. Similar footage to cut story showing demonstrations of lasers at the Services Electronics Research Laboratories.

    Cuts for story HOVERBATS in CP 636. Similar footage to cut story about these new hover vehicles being tried out on a field and lake at Apethorpe.

    Cuts for story CONVEYOR-BELT CONFECTIONARY in CP 636. Similar footage to cut story about sweets being made at this factory in Bury.

    A stray sequence of nice shots of crowds of people on the South Bank in London at dusk, most are standing in front of the Royal Festival Hall. We look across the River Thames to see the Shell Building. Waterloo Bridge is lit by a string of lights across its length. As it gets darker we see several illuminated barges go by - not very clearly. Some of the stationary barges seem to have water jets spurting from them. A barge featuring fire breathing dragons is seen. We then see fireworks going off - in L/Ss. The fireworks seen at the end of the LASERS story are probably from this footage - the cut story is better for firework shots. I am not sure what the water carnival and fireworks are celebrating - Chinese New Year? Lord Mayor's Show? Some kind of Thames festival?
