  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    At Port Elizabeth, South Africa, we see various scenic shots of a lake and waterfall in a mountain region. Several shots show African and white men working together on a new road in the area, using pneumatic drills, blasting a path with dynamite and clearing rubble for the mountain road with a mechanical shovel.

    In Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, we see a cat called Kitty who is the mascot of a darts club. Kitty sits beneath the dart board while the men are throwing their darts, then pulls the darts from the board with her paws, without being spiked by them!
