• Short Summary

    Everything you ever wanted to know about mushrooms, including several ideas for mushroom party nibbles.

  • Description

    Worthing, West Sussex.

    In a laboratory we see various shots of scientists separating and germinating mushroom spores to obtain seeds for growers. A bottle of seeds labelled 'Darlington's Grain Spawn, Worthing'.

    C/Us of a bed of mushrooms growing. At a mushroom packing factory, women pick mushrooms from beds in the darkened sheds, pack them into boxes and weigh them.

    Good C/U of fried breakfast - mushrooms, bacon, sausages and tomatoes - cooking in a frying pan. Several shots of new ideas for serving mushrooms; some excellent footage here of party food / parties. Plates of 1960s party food (mostly teeming with mushrooms) being passed around; guests eating vol-au-vents and other nibbles; trying a mushroom dip. A man sets alight a plate of mushrooms in brandy.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
