    Titles read: "Pathetone Lightens The 'Blackout' With - VERY TASTY, VERY SWEET!"

    Gulf of Sorrento, Italy.

    At oysters beds off the coast of Italy we see various shots of the oysters being bred. Fishermen in small boats pulling up long strands of oysters clinging to ropes. The oysters are laid out on tables on the quay and graded; any that are not quite ready are put back into the water. The remaining oysters are cleaned and opened; C/U of the inside of an oyster.

    The current location for this clip is incorrect - rather than being The Gulf of Sorrento, it's The Gulf of Taranto. That error needs changing in text and tags.
