    Story about Vesuvius.

    M/S of some tourists walking on the lava slopes of the volcano. Various shots of them scaling the sides (there is at least one woman in the party.) Shot of the summit of the volcano with smoke emerging. M/S of two men standing on a rock watching the volcano giving out smoke. Closer shot of the smoke billowing out of the summit. Low angle shot of the volcano which shows rocks flying out of the top of the volcano.

    "Vesuvius may be a good safety valve for Mother Earth but it's a mighty unpleasant neighbour when it wakes up." reads an intertitle. More shots of violent eruptions of Vesuvius.
