    Cuts from newsreel story 46/53 - Channel Swimmer.

    Various shots of Jorge Berruta, swimmer from Chile, preparing for his Channel swim attempt, doing arm and chest exercises. Berruta sits on a boat on the beach and takes a pill from his young trainer then swallows it. Pan down to Berruta's rather large breast area and belly.

    He gets in the water and has a practice swim wearing goggles then wades out of the water again. He grins and gives thumbs up to camera.
