Background: President Georges Pompidou of France and his wife, currently on a five-state tour of French-speaking Africa, arrived in Cameroun on Tuesday (February 9). Our film shows the arrival at Yaounde Airport -- probably the most colourful reception they have had so far on the tour.
There is a track of a very good natural sound on the film -- well worth using under the commentary.
