Boys from Eton end up soaked and exhausted after a strenuous steeplechase.
Title: "Eton College Steeplechases. Everybody had to go through the water - only one succeeded in jumping it!"
M/S of boys in tops hats and caps crossing a stream on a narrow pole - some use their stomachs, others sit on and shimmy along. M/S of lots of Etonians watching the race, some boys have climbed to the top of two trees to get a better view. M/S of boys racing along a wide track, parents and schoolmates cheer from either side, the boys have to jump over a muddy river, most end up soaked. M/S, looking from the side, of boys jumping the river - it looks impossibly wide! More shots of boys landing the river. Various shots of boys lying on a field exhausted from finishing the race. C/U of one young man - the race winner? - he is soaked and gasping for breath.
