  • Short Summary

    Various shots of enormous bonfire with massive Guy Fawkes on top. It burns!

  • Description

    Man climbs up a ladder which is propped up against a large bonfire. On top of the bonfire is an enormous - and impressive Guy Fawkes figure.

    Various shots of the Guy being secured to the bonfire. There are two large barrels labelled "gunpowder". Men throw liquid against the fire - paraffin presumably.

    Various shots of the bonfire in flames and of the crowd watching the spectacle - these are shot at night.
