• Short Summary

    School children race in big rowing boats on the Thames at Twickenham.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Twickenham. 'It's the School Kiddies' 'Henley'!' and the girls and boys - all under 14 - 'put it all in', even if not quite so fast as the 'grown ups'."

    Twickenham, Middlesex.

    A group of young boys are cheered as they carry their oars down to the riverside. They climb into their rowing boats, assisted by adults.

    Shots of cheering children on the river bank cheering their school mates on as the race down the Thames. The boats look very big for such little boys to be rowing.

    Pan along line of girls holding their oars. Shots of the girls race.

    Nice shot of some of the competitors. Shot of boy eating big ice cream. A voice off camera ask if he feels hot.
