    Prague, Czechoslovakia.

    Views of flowers placed around coffin on display outside. Unidentified man stands on podium behind microphones, pan to coffin draped in Czech flag. Pan across row of foreign dignitaries, ambassadors etc.

    Shots of massive funeral procession through Prague. The coffin of Czech politician Jan Masaryk is borne on a gun carriage. Good shots show the size of the procession. Lots of soldiers march in the procession. Various shots of planes flying overhead in flypast. The parade halts and thousands of troops file past the coffin. CU of various dignitaries. The coffin is carried away.

    N.B. Jan Masaryk died in early 1948 - did he jump or was he pushed?
