    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for story featured in Colour Pictorial - CP 653. The original story is also on Pathe Master tape *PM0413*.

    Cuts for story MOROCCO in CP 653. Nearly all different footage that was not used in the story of sights and scenes of Morocco. A different sequence shows a man working on a miniature model of a Moroccan city. People pick oranges in the orchards. Several street scenes showing Hasidic Jews (?) walking about. A monk walks about, possibly inside the catholic cathedral in Casablanca.

    Western tourists looks at some ancient papers displayed in a modern glass case. Brief shots inside a synagogue (?). Brief shots of an unidentified town; looks pretty grim; shots through barbed wire. A silver Jaguar and a scooter get caught up in a herd of cows walking along the road. Several shots of a partly ruined city (?).

    Sequences which appear to be from CP 613 - THE KING OF JORDAN show the King visiting a mosque with scaffolding around it.

    A group of small boys walk along a street; cameraman holds a sign in front of the camera (upside down) reading 'Herods Stone'. Several unidentified street scenes; the Arch of Ecchoma is seen; M/S of a street sign reading 'Via Dolorosa'. Various shots of petrified trees. L/S of the Garden of Gethsemane. Various shots of some kind of police frontier. Brief shots inside an unidentified church.

    A figure totally encased in a striped hooded robe is seen from behind as it walks up a snowy mountainside; we do not see it's face; I think it is a Yehti on holiday. Shots of skiers and then hotels and swimming pools as in cut story; scenes of the coast at El Jadida; the crowd at the military parade at Rabat.
