    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In Canada we see some young huskies in training in the snow. Older dogs are seen drawing sleds in dog teams. A puppy has a miniature sleigh attached to his back - he runs along for a bit, then decides to stop for a drink of water. A woman holds several pups in her arms - one licks her face.

    At a zoo we see two polar bears wandering about their rather small cage and getting into their pool. One of the bears jerks his head and neck repeatedly - quite a disturbing example of an animal unhappy at being in a cage. The other rolls about in the snow. One bear in the pool nibbles at a small piece of ice held between his paws. (This whole sequence is not very pleasant to watch.)

    In Russian Turkestan we see men picking cotton from bushes at harvest time. Men carry sacks of cotton and put them on a pile. Traditional music is on the soundtrack. We see the men dancing, playing instruments and singing at the end of the harvest - not natural sound.
