    This is the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race of 1969, which Cambridge won by 4 lengths. The film shows the crews approaching and passing Hammersmith Bridge, with Cambridge already comfortably in the lead. Cambridge had a record-breaking heavyweight in the number 4 seat - as seen when the crews pass the camera (around 1m 56 sec.).
