  • Short Summary

    Cameraman goes to great lengths to get good shots from the top of a radio mast.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Wonderful new Wireless Mast - Our cameraman, ever in search of the sensational, takes novel pictures from risky perch 250 feet up."

    Kidbrooke, Greater London.

    Fun shots of a cameraman climbing up the inside of a radio mast to get shots for the newsreel. Nice "worm's eye view" as he climbs up the inside then a "bird's eye view" from the top. Shot over the side showing two men at work with hammers. Vertiginous shots looking down from the top and shots from the ground showing the cameraman at the top.

    Note: this print is rather scratched but still fun!
