• Short Summary

    Oxford boat race crew in training on the Thames - rowing scenes on the river.

  • Description

    Preparations for the Oxford and Cambridge boat race - the rowing teams train.

    Title reads: "Oxford - if not rowing quite so beautifully together are showing fine watermanship, and will be hard to beat if the water is rough!"

    Side view from boat of Oxford team rowing along the river. Slightly different angle as team continue to row. Cut to another angle. (These scenes may well have been shot at Henley-on-Thames as Oxford appear to have been training there.)

    (Natural sound track only - No commentary)

    N.B. This story and the one about Cambridge were originally one item.
