    Buckingham Palace, London?

    Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh enter a room and pose in front of a fire place. They chat. A corgi dog comes and looks at them. Prince Philip talks to the dog. As they stand the camera zooms in to close up shots of their faces. Queen and Prince Philip sit on sofa. Queen looking at newspaper and chats to Prince Philip, they are trying to look relaxed. Dog is sitting at their feet. Camera pans to show a large group of the press photographers and cameramen filming. More shots of the Queen and Prince Philip trying to look relaxed on sofa. More shots of the Queen and Prince Philip on the sofa, several camera men are behind them now. Date on the clapper board reads - 9/6/1976. Several shots of the Queen and Prince Philip walking through room towards a bunch of fishing rods. Prince Philip choses one and plays with it as he and the Queen talk - still trying to look relaxed - still with large group of cameramen in the room. Prince Philip picks something up from table behind them - it almost looks as if they have never been in the room. Camera pans to show the cameramen at work. More shots of the Queen and Prince Philip chatting and camera men at work. Queen and Prince Philip walk out of the room, she turns to chat with one of the men and then leaves.
