Intertitle reads: "In this Pictorial is the EIGHTH of TEN small scenes in which we've purposely made a cardinal blunder" (presumably there are another 9 of these scenes somewhere.) "We will award £100 to the Patron who gives the TEN correctly - or nearest thereto. In event of tie the £100 will be divided." "There will also be £25 in cash consolation prizes for those next nearest." "Send Postcard to Pathe's London, stating the intentional fault in the following little film......No. 8." L/S of a cricket match being played on a village green. M/S of the bowler bouncing the cricket ball on the ground (!). He then bowls, the man in the crease hits the ball and a fielder catches it. "Look out for No. 9 next week. Full details on Poster at this Theatre."
