  • Description

    Slate reading 'Olympic winners at Garmisch'. Nice, very long close up of Germany's Maxi Herber and Ernst Baier performing in the pairs figure skating, in which they won the gold medal. Spectators applauding, very brief close up Adolf Hitler watching on from balcony.
    Brief action from the USA v Canada in the final round of the men's ice hockey. Scoreboard showing 'USA v Canada' in German, then close up of action, and spectators watching on. Various brief close ups of action, including goal scored by Canada. Close up action, including skirmish in the USA goalmouth, but it's not enough, and Great Britain are able to win the gold medal.
    Pan across huge crowd of 90,000 spectators watching the men's ski jump final. Wide angle of jumper making successful jump, then various jumpers making their jumps. Norway's Birger Ruud makes his gold medal winning jump and skis to a halt.
