  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In East London, South Africa, we see various shots of women playing bowls at an annual tournament. They start by making a 'mass attack' - all rolling their bowls into the centre of the green at the same time. The woman whose ball is closest to the jack gets a silver cup, so the women all run in to investigate. Good shots of the mainly middle-aged women.

    At a zoo (London Zoo?) we see a tiny bear cub being fed with a bottle by his keeper. This baby bear is extremely cute!

    In Japan we see various shots of a cock crowing contest. Cockerel owners put their birds on a pedestal; men sit around and watch them crowing (natural sound). The one that crows longest and loudest wins.
