  • Description

    In the United States, sandwich maker Jim McElwee is building sandwiches large enough for even the biggest American appetite. His biggest is over eleven feet (3 metres) long.

    The big sandwiches are called 'hoagies'. Mr. McElwee's eleven foot giant consists of various types of garlic sausage, lettuce and tomatoes inside a continuous bread roll.

    A hundred and fifty varieties of 'hoagies' are one sale at "Mac 's Hoagies" stand in Shamokin, Pennsylvania. Max Owner, who bought the stand, is hoping Jim McEliwee will be able to increase the range of 'hoagies' to two hundred.

    The Hoagies are named after famous people that Mr. Owner and Jim McElwee either like of dislike. One 'Hoagie' named after former Vice President Spiro Agnew is advertised 'with a 25 per cent kick back'.

    The film includes a commentary by Television News reporter Andy Macmillan and remarks by sandwich maker Jim McElwee.

    An alternative commentary is provided overleaf. A transcript of Mr. McElwee's remarks follows.
