  • Description

    No titles.

    London.

    Several shots of young people putting up tents and setting up a camp in a countryside area (location unknown - commentator mentions they camped in Lapland the previous summer, but this looks like Britain). C/U of sausages cooking on a camping stove. The teenagers queue up to be served their food. Brief shot of a man looking in a mirror and shaving with an electric shaver.

    Cut to the Camping Exhibition at Olympia where people look at a tent with a radar scanner on the top. Others look at a tent dating from 1851.

    Top shot, pan down to show exhibition hall. Several shots of man opening up touring sports tent which is contained in a small trailer. Shots of the Caraboat showing two people inside in sleeping bags - the man reads a magazine while the woman looks a bit trapped in her bag.

    General view of the Hodsworth Conversion Caravan - camper van. Interior shots of the conversion caravan shows a couple and a little girl seated at the dinner table with the concertina roof raised.

    Inside the Alpine Cruiser tent we see a woman opening a cooker contained in a cabinet and and placing kettle on the burner. Inside the same tent we see a man laying the table and a boy in bed. M/S of girl in a bikini lies on a lilo inside the Nausicaa Solarium - a transparent plastic tent, which apparently keeps the rain off in the British summer. Not sure how you breathe inside it!
