• Short Summary

    George Baker sings with gusto - a song about the beauty of nature.

  • Description

    Title reads: "Now Pathe Pictorial Presents the Celebrated Baritone George Baker in 'I Travel the Road'."

    Pathe Studios, London.

    George Baker sits on a stile in a countryside setting - this is almost certainly filmed in the Pathe Studio. He wears a quasi-hiking outfit.

    As he sings "I Travel The Road" a sequence of countryside scenes unfolds. A horse drawn cart of hay, country roads lined with trees, no traffic, misty lane stretching off into the countryside, sheep on the path, woodland, fields with little haystacks etc.

    George stands, legs akimbo and hands in pocket singing with gusto. The song is all about the beauty of nature.

    More shots of beautiful England. An elderly farmer leads a horse and cart, sheep trot along a country path, three girls sit in a wood, thatched cottages, cows in a misty field, cloudy sky, sunset.

    George ends his song with an expansive arm gesture. Very nice!

    Footage includes end title sequence (story ends at 01:56:35).
