• Short Summary

    A village in Turkey stands around strange shapes - fairy chimneys - in the eroded cliffs.

  • Description

    Cappadocia, Turkey.

    Several shots of a village in Turkey where erosion of volcanic rock has formed numerous strange, chimney-type shapes; commentator refers to them as Fairy Chimneys. Homes have been hollowed out from the cliffs; people sit at a cliff-top cafe.

    A woman walks with a donkey loaded with jugs to a well and uses a pump to get water. Other donkeys walk about laden with sacks full of vegetables (?).

    General views of the village; a minaret is seen in the distance; a man standing in a tower calls people to prayer; school children rush to look over a wall - presumably at the Pathe cameraman!

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
