  • Description

    No title.

    Corinthia, Greece.

    M/S of men on horses getting ready for the barrel game. Various shots as a band plays and the barrel is put over a pole in the picturesque village. Various shots as the men ride past and hit the barrel with a stick, the hoops eventually fall to the ground. The next round is to secure one of the hoops on their sticks. Pretty young girl called Griselda walks along with the prize. M/S as they try and hook the hoops. The winner hooks flowered hoop and holds it in the air.

    Back to Jack Barty - he says a large thirst always accompanies his barrels. He does a 'knock knock' joke which leads him into introducing the next item.

    This is not Corinthia or Greece for sure. Maybe Bavaria or Hungary
