    Despite Blitz, Manchester puts on its usual Circus.

  • Description

    Title reads: "Manchester can take it".

    Despite the Blitz, Manchester still puts on its usual Circus.

    Various shots of a circus ring with clowns, acrobats, horses and a lion trainer (Captain Tommy Kayes) performing their acts. Several cut-ins of the audience which is mainly children.

    Narrator comments: "It takes more than a maniac with a door mat under his nose to stop Manchester's fun".
