• Short Summary

    A Swiss mountainside railway doubles as a snowplough, a man skates on stilts and Hungarian boys play pan pipes.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Caught by the Camera" - animated title shows a dog trying to run away from a camera with a face - the camera has the dog's tail in his mouth.

    Various locations.

    Several shots of a mountainside railway near the Matterhorn, Switzerland. The train clears the heavy snow as it passes, but where the snow gets too thick, men have get out and move it from the tracks with shovels.

    In the valley (probably still in Switzerland) we see a man skating on an ice rink, wearing stilts of about a foot high and a white suit with white top hat. He skates with a girl, then plays about on the ice with some children.

    In Nagykikinda, Hungary we see a local band of young boys playing pan pipes or wooden shepherd pipes. They all wear traditional uniforms.
