    Cuts (out takes, rushes) for stories in Colour Pictorial - CP 705. The original stories are on Pathe Master Tape *PM0455*.

    Cuts for story BEER BOTTLE TOPS in CP 705. Similar footage to cut story; brief cuts showing Tom Williams making a model lady in a crinoline from beer bottle tops. C/U of a glass of beer standing next to a brown beer bottle.

    Stray shot of a kaleidoscope spinning round, similar to those used by hypnotists in spooky films; could be from MISS HONEYWELL in CP 705 stories but I'm not sure.

    Cuts for story MISS HONEYWELL in CP 705. Mostly similar footage to cut story about 'robot girl' Miss Honeywell demonstration computers and equipment at an Olympia trade show. Several shots here show the man at the control board flicking switches labelled 'Walk', 'Turn' and 'Bend' etc. More shots of the computerised boards showing dials and flashing lights. Several brief shots of the fascinated crowd.

    Cuts for story EPPING FOREST in CP 705. Similar footage to cut story about school girls going on a nature walk with naturalist Fred Speakman. The girls look at a clump of chicken feathers from a fox kill found under a bush and see a fox and a squirrel in cages at Fred's home.
