  • Description

    Sardinia.

    A tour around the island of Sardinia. Various shots inside an aeroplane with pilot Captain Clark and tourists Mr and Mrs Best taking pictures, we see passengers disembarking at Fertilia airport.

    Scenic shots of Alghero harbour with the fishing boats and men tending nets. We see tourists at Neptune's grotto, a fort at Torralba and some Mediterranean looking buildings at La Maddalena. L/S of Caprera and several shots of Garibaldi's tomb and monument guarded by a naval rating.

    Various shots of locals including a man leading cattle, a man on a donkey and a woman carrying a water jug on her head. We see women washing wool in the river and hanging it out to dry on bushes. Several shots of ornaments intricately hand painted at Dorgali, and baskets and mats being woven at Castelsardo including a display of the colourful finished items. We see an elderly lady doing tapestry outside. There is also a sequence where men and women walk about in national costume and do some traditional dancing.
