  • Description

    Sound for this item is currently missing.

    Actress Anne Firth and champion swimmer Nancy Riach from Motherwell feature in this story. Nancy demonstrates diving and swimming techniques.

    C/U of Nancy's swimming costume which has a "Scotland" badge sewn on the front. She wears a kilt over the top. Anne wears a floral ruched swimsuit. Location of the story isn't known but it looks like a natural lake rather than a swimming pool.

    Various shots of Nancy swimming and diving with C/Us of Anne and others watching her technique. Nancy gets out of the lake and smiles at camera. Last shot is a low angle of Nancy posing in her swimsuit.

    Note: old records suggest this shot at Marshall St. Baths but looks more like a lake to me.
