• Short Summary

    Students' Rectorial election at Glasgow University.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "GLASGOW UNIVERSITY POLL - Students vote for new Lord Rector."

    Glasgow, Scotland.

    Various shots of masses of students throwing whatever they could find at each other - flower, soot, ochre, sawdust. This is the old tradition of Rectorial Elections at Glasgow University.

    Various shots of masses of students fighting - they are all very dirty and the stuff they throw looks like tear gas - it looks much more dangerous then it is.
