  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    At Barcelona, Spain we see views of the city from a kind of revolving captive aeroplane ride attached to a pole in the sports arena. Higher views are seen from a revolving observation car. Commentator talks of how the city has developed since the Spanish Civil War.

    At Rome Zoo in Italy we see a leopard, lynx, antelope and giraffe with babies. All very cute! Final shot pans up from the mother giraffe's knees to her head as she chews some food.
