  • Description

    Magazine film made for television - these stories are probably found elsewhere in library in full. Mixture of stories from the late 1940s and early 1950s.

    No main title. Mice race - See 1269.05 for full description. The pub is named by narrator as: the Royal Oak, Widcombe (?). This is near Bath in Somerset.

    Exploring for bats in caves - members of the Devon Spelaeological Society. Buckfastleigh, Devon. See 1381.04 for full description.

    People in centrifugal drum - excellent funfair ride called "Rideawall". See 1381.08 for full description. The man in African chief's costume is named as Prince Kari-Kari (sp?) and one of the showgirls is named as "Kasinga the Snake Goddess".

    Egg "Football Match" - see 1275.24 for full description.

    Football manufacture - see 1313.03 for full description - I think this is the same story although this version may have different commentary and has match footage at beginning rather than end of film. Men making footballs are named as Alf Marshall, Bill Woods and Jim Gosling.

    Dogs Playing Football - see 1281.20 for full description. This version ends abruptly.
