  • Description

    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for stories in Colour Pictorial - CP 408. The original stories are also on Pathe Master tape *PM0199*.

    Cuts for story CHOPSTICKS COMPETITION in CP 408. Similar footage to cut story of contestants eating Chinese food with chopsticks in an open air Butlin's competition. Different shots show a Chinese / Oriental man watching the contestants using the chopsticks and shaking his head at their attempts.

    Cuts for story BROADS HOLIDAY in CP 408. Mostly similar footage to cut story about teenagers on a camping holiday on the Norfolk Broads. As well as the activities seen in the original story we also see a young man chopping wood and teenagers and a woman (who could be Lady Hunt, wife of Sir John Hunt) washing pots and pans. George Lowe of the Everest Expedition may also be seen very briefly, walking over the deck of a boat.

    Cuts for story KNIFE-THROWING in CP 408. More nice footage in Martin and Mrs Collins' sweet and tobacco shop; a man buys a cigar from Martin; we can see packets of Spangles, Refreshers and Nipits (sweets) on the counter before Martin. Martin looks at his watch and motions to his wife he is going somewhere. In the garden we see Agnes practising rope and lasso tricks; Martin checks his knives and throws one at the board - it doesn't stick and he grimaces and says something (looks like "Bloody hell"). Several knife-throwing shots as in cut story. Great slow motion shot where Martin appears to be throwing the knives either side of the cameraman (and us!).

    Cuts for story AWAY FROM IT ALL in CP 408. Brief cuts, similar footage to cut story, mostly people watching something (horses in Hyde Park? the building work at Hyde Park Corner?).
