    Titles read: "TUNING THE GIANT!"

    Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

    Various shots of an enormous organ in Sydney's town hall. Commentator says the organ is going to be retuned to standard pitch, as we see men checking each one of the pipes inside the organ. Several shots of the different pipes and the louvres (shutters) opening to let the music swell. Sydney Nolan, who planned the organ, is seen playing it as we hear a tremendous whirl of music coming out of the pipes. Good shots to illustrate a large old style organ being played.
