  • Short Summary

    Harrow school celebrates its founders' day with a rugby game.

  • Description

    Harrow-on-the-Hill, London.

    Intertitle: "FOUNDED IN 1751. Boys of the famous 'School-on-the-Hill' once again celebrate Founders day".

    L/S of a flight of stairs leading into a garden, lots of school boys in white britches are seen coming down them.

    Various shots of boys playing rugby on a scenic field with oak trees in the distance - very picturesque and quintessentially English.

    M/S of lots of boys in boaters sitting at the edge of the field watching the game. Good C/U of two schoolboys - one has thick glasses and a boater, the other wears a sort of fez and is a bit of a dish!
