    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for stories featured in Colour Pictorial - CP 664. The original stories are also on Pathe Master tape *PM0425*.

    Cuts for story PRAGUE in CP 664. Similar footage to cut story showing general views of the city; people skating on the outdoor ice-rink; many shots of the barmy people swimming in the freezing cold river on Boxing Day; a swimming brunette waves at the camera. A brief shot shows two men walking through the courtyard / gardens of a large old building - the castle, perhaps? More shots of St Vitus' Cathedral and the Jewish cemetery. A different sequence shows a modern, circular restaurant, raised from the ground on stilts. People board a tram in the city.

    Cuts for story SYDNEY in CP 664. A different sequence shows people in a 'Skyway' cable car travelling over a huge valley; mountains are seen in the distance, trees are below us; people look out over the amazing view from the cliff top; a stone platform reads 'Queen Elizabeth Lookout'; M/S of a stone plaque about the area - difficult to read exactly what and where it is. General city / street scenes. Several shots of surfers riding the waves. Lovely shots of sleepy Koala Bears in trees. Several shots of a military man on horseback directing traffic (could be near Sydney Airport).
