We visit a New York power station, partly responsible for the fantastic illuminated skyline and billboards of the city.
Titles read: "BEHIND THE SWITCH! A Study of New York."
New York, United States of America.
L/S of the exterior of a power station. Inside we see men working on huge machinery, pipes and generators. Various shots of men sitting before huge counsel boards, answering phones and flicking switches on switchboards. Commentator talks of people whose jobs start just as others are finishing.
L/S of the New York skyline as we come under one of the bridges. M/S of a large switch being pushed up, then we see several shots of the skyline illuminated at night. Good shots of the city streets and illuminated billboards around Times Square / Broadway at night time.
