  • Description

    Filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.

    Various shots of a very large pipe being "launched." The pipe is being moved from the shore into the sea. We see various shots of the pipe being moved along into the sea by a system of trolleys and pulleys. Man in an old fashioned diving suit emerges from where he is submerged close to the pipe.

    More shots of the pipe being moved. The pipe is seen stretching out on the surface of the water. Shots from on top of the water of the pipe being moved. High angle shot of the pipe stretching up and along the beach.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 692.
