Background: A novel winter sport was recently filmed by Visnews on one of the many snow-covered slopes of Switzerland.
These boys might well be pages on their way to a giant's banquet or young shield bearers going into battle. But the "dust-bin lids" they are carrying serve a different purpose. At the top of the hill the boys throw them in the snow, hollow side up, sit on them and off they go down the slope.
The gliding saucer has come into fashion and there is fun galore for all children who can be persuaded to give hula-hooping a break and try something new. And who says they can't be persuaded?
