  • Description

    Titles read: "Sportshots - Popular sports and pastimes under the cine-camera lens. Described by Charles Eade of the 'Sunday Express'. This week Charles Eade introduces something novel in 'Going to the Dogs'."

    Location of events unknown.

    Various shots of spectators arriving at a country field for a small greyhound race. They buy their tickets and put money on their chosen dogs; commentator Charles Eade jokingly describes it all as if we are at a big dog track. The dogs are led past on parade; the hare is hooked up to a motor wheel and the race starts. It seems to be going well, but ends in chaos when some of the dogs start to fight; several people try to break it up.
