    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of a man collecting seaweed on a beach. He hangs the seaweed on a line to dry then makes it into belts complete with buckles. Two schoolboys watch him working. The man holds up a finished belt. (Location of events unknown - looks like somewhere in Britain.)

The girls wear evening dresses with their diamonds and sparkling jewels. Commentator makes a comment about "Not a war in sight". One of the women wears the Jonkers Diamond, worth a million dollars.
