  • Short Summary

    Very short segment showing Guillemots gathered on Yorkshire cliffs.

  • Description

    No title. Yorkshire coast. "In the distance thousands of Guillemots." L/S of a cliff with thousands of birds perched upon it. High angle shot of birds on the water. C/U of some of the birds sitting on the rock. "Yes, thousands, spelling one word...Eggs to the fearless folk who earn their day's pay collecting them." Four frames showing man just about to abseil down the cliff to collect eggs. Beginning of first shot of "Little Known Professions - Egg Engineers"

    The intertitles for these two films are different I think that this section is part of a film that was reedited by American Pathe into "Little Known Professions - Egg Engineers".
