    Cuts (out takes, rushes) for stories in Colour Pictorial - CP 673. The original stories are on Pathe Master tape *PM0431*.

    Cuts for story BODY PAINT in CP 673. Similar footage to cut story about a bikini-clad girl coming out of the Serpentine and having her body painted by a young man. A different shot shows the man pretending to paint over the camera with a little paint roller; he is also seen walking through Hyde Park with two tins of paint. The girl goes for a swim in the Serpentine after her body painting session (we don't get to see the effect of water on her paint).

    Cuts for story THE BONZO DOG DOO DAH BAND (Music for Head Ballet) in CP 673. Similar footage to cut story of the band moving their heads left and right. Two shots with the clapperboard. A few funny shots where one or other of the band goes slightly wrong. From a different angle we see the end 'movement' when they all look one by one to the right; the head of the dummy falls off, assisted by Roger Ruskin Spear.

    Cuts for story NURDLING in CP 673. Similar footage to cut story about people dressed as yokels, taking part in silly races and doing some mysterious 'Nurdling' in a tent. Various shots of competitors and spectators in costumes.

    Cuts for story THE BONZO DOG DOO DAH BAND (Equestrian Statue) in CP 673. Similar footage to cut story of the whole band performing this number in London's Speakeasy club. Lengthy shot of Rodney Slater playing the trombone and Legs Larry Smith on drums, with Roger Ruskin Spear and Sam Spoons in the background on trumpet and trombone. Also a few shots of Legs Larry Smith 'painting' Neil Innes as the statue; Neil looks like he's trying not to laugh.

    "a bikini-clad girl coming out of the Serpentine" - the girl is model and future Bond movie and horror film star Caroline Munro. (These are out-takes for clip 431.08.)
