  • Description

    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for story in Colour Pictorial - CP 647. The original story is also on Pathe Master tape *PM0409*.

    Cuts for story KENYA SAFARI in CP 647. Different footage here to the cut story about the wildlife and scenery at Tsavo National Park in Kenya, Africa. Some different footage of western holidaymakers and Africans swimming in the sea. Lengthy sequence of people water-skiing on a lake (? could be the sea). Some modern hotels with swimming pools are seen. A lengthy sequence shows some unidentified ruins - looks like a church or temple. People on a beach look at a huge swordfish that is strung up. African children watch a fishing boat on the water; one plays on a recorder.

    Several street scenes in a town - could be Nairobi. A fruit market stall sells limes, lemons, green bananas and pineapples. Orchids are sprayed with water at some kind of plant research or cultivation centre. More street scenes; a policeman directs traffic.

    A Land Rover drives over orange dusty ground to a propellor aeroplane. A lioness is seen walking about dusty ground and chasing vultures away from a dead, part-eaten animal - a wildebeest or antelope?
