  • Description

    Titles read: "NEWS FLASHES".

    Various locations of events.

    In Rhodesia, South Africa, we see various shots of the Cary Tree Stumper driving through the forest and uprooting a tree. It looks like a tractor with chains and 'pusher arms' attached to the read. Inventor Mr Cary operates the device. When the tree has been uprooted he drives off along a country road.

    In Dakar we see various shots of fishermen in boats at sea, hauling in nets full of small fish to use as bait for catching tunny fish (tuna). The tunny fish are caught on rods and lines and are brought on board, wriggling and flapping.

    01:11:59 Title reads: "HARLOW".
    Various shots of a new spire for the first Catholic Church to be built in Harlow, Essex, being put into position by a crane. Three clergymen watch. The structures of the modern church (of Our Lady of Fatima) are seen as the very long spire is placed on top.
