    Titles read: "SWAN UPPERS".

    River Thames.

    C/U of badge of the keeper of the Kings Swans. We then see various shots of men of the Vintners and Dyers companies who have been keeping tabs on the swans that belong to them since 1473.

    The men row along the river, dressed in traditional costume, and catch the swans that belong to them. The swans and cygnets are marked on their beaks to show which company they belong to, then are thrown back into the water. Good shots of swans swimming along. The men row on in their search.
