• Short Summary

    Brief shots before and after Mrs Neville Chamberlain's appearance in Belfast - we don't see her!

  • Description

    Belfast, Northern Ireland.

    Due to missing footage; Mrs Neville Chamberlain does not appear in this item.

    Very brief shots of Northern Ireland's new airport and seaplane base; rows of people sitting in chairs; lines of aeroplanes with their propellors turning. Commentator explains Mrs Neville Chamberlain is opening the airport.

    Visuals cut out at 01:48:02; soundtrack continues - we do not get to see Mrs Neville Chamberlain or the flypast!

    Visuals cut in again at 01:48:21 to show HMS Belfast just disappearing down the ramp from the shipyard as we pan left to show the huge watching crowds. Brief shot of the warship on the water.
