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

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of brown bears in an enclosure at a zoo. They growl at us and sit on their hind legs. Two have a bit of a fight. Commentator makes lots of use of the double meanings of the word 'bear'. (Could be Prague Zoo in Czechoslovakia?)

    We then see a thrush sitting in her nest on a windowsill in a block of flats in Prague. We see the eggs in her nest, then some tiny chicks. Another bird has nested in the middle of a wreath that has been hung on a crucifix in a graveyard or cemetery. The bird (looks like a bullfinch) feeds its babies.

    At Gravesend in Kent we see various shots of men in naval uniform on a 'ship' that is actually built into the top of a house overlooking a harbour. A man with an eye patch seems to be the owner and captain, known as Long John Silver. He is a London businessman from Monday to Friday but on weekends he goes on board his 'ship' and forgets that land and London exists (sounds like a good idea). Shots in the 'ship' show several figureheads, model ships and nautical gear, plus fish swimming around in a porthole tank. Long John Silver's friends look about and are treated to a tot of rum.
