  • Short Summary

    Cinematic guessing game for children - various images which the children have to name.

  • Description

    British Instructional Films Ltd presents a Classroom Film.

    This seems to be a cinematic guessing game for schoolchildren.


    i) Man climbs a rock face. He attaches metal grips to the side of the rock. ii) Boy carries a sledge up a steep hill covered in snow. iii) Large number of soldiers march in unison at a military parade. iv) An elderly man with a long beard and dowdy clothes walks along in an alley or back street - presumably a tramp. v) Man puts a very large stack of hay on his back to carry down a steep hillside. vi) Child in a cute suit and hat runs towards the camera, then towards its mother. vii) Man pulls a sledge laden with a crop. He then rides the sledge down the hill. It topples over and he holds his knees as if injured. viii) Large number of young people ski down a mountainside. Various falls. All fairly short shots.

    Note: some of these shots (if not all) are taken from other B.I.F. films. e.g. "Alpine Farm".
