• Short Summary

    A caravan that turns into a boat is taken for a spin at Henley-on-Thames.

  • Description

    Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

    M/S of a car towing a caravan through a village. The car stops by the river (River Thames); a man and woman get out and attach an outboard motor and some buffers to the caravan as commentator tells us the caravan is also a boat. The man pushes the Caraboat into the water, watched by some elderly people on a bench.

    Various shots on board the Caraboat; the woman makes a cup of tea as the man steers; then she sits and admires the view through the window on a rainy and gloomy day - how nice to be indoors! A few shots from the river bank show the contraption drifting along and coming under a bridge.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
