  • Description

    Riots in Spain, part of build up to Spanish Civil War. No titles, originally part of 'News in a Nutshell'.

    Communists march in unidentified city (Madrid?) streets celebrating victory of Popular Front candidates in the elections. Various shots of Spanish communist party members marching. At first it seems peaceful; they march in an orderly fashion behind banners with communist slogans and hammer and sickles on, many wear uniforms. The police watch, leaning on their motorbikes.

    Various shots of crowds rioting. According to the narrator some of the communists have set fire to a church; smoke can be seen coming from nearby buildings. The is widespread panic.

    Cataloguer's note: commentary seems a bit anti-Communist, views them as yobs - "when the Popular Front boys get tired of marching around some of them set fire to a church". AH 2001.

    Note: on *PM0883* both the combined print and the separate mag track have been transferred. This is why in places both the Spanish and English commentaries can be heard. Item can be retransferred on request with only one commentary on.
