    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for "America's National Parks" story in Colour Pictorial - CP 733.

    Cuts include lots of footage not used in final story. This reel begins with material of the Everglades National Park including good point of view shots from on board the ranger's boat

    Second section features footage of VW combi van (if that is what they are called - a camper van) parked in a caravan park. A man checks some meat he is cooking on a barbecue - good C/U of large slabs of meat being barbecued.

    Ranger looks through binoculars. Various shots of birds in the park and of tourists walking along the walkways. L/S of the ranger's boat moving through the Everglades. C/U of a couple looking at the view - the man looks through binoculars. Various shots of alligators.
