  • Description

    Crowborough, East Sussex.

    Various shots of Charlie Macey, Backward-walking Champion of the World bouncing up and down on a pogo stick, surrounded by astonished children. It looks quite funny. Charlie is practising for an attempt at staying on the pogo stick for half and hour. After jumping about for a while he starts to move off, followed by the crowd of children, now laughing.

    Note: there is correspondence on file.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
