A look at the Oxford team in training for the annual Oxbridge boat race.
Intertitle: "THE DARK BLUES please the critics on their first appearance at Putney for final practice for the great race".
High angle shot of the Oxford University team walking their boat down a slipway to the River Thames. A crowd of spectators, mostly men, move in to get a better look as they reach the water.
The crew are then seen walking away from the river, they wear shorts and cricket sweaters. They return carrying their oars. L/S of the crew in action on the water. Good M/S of a man steadying the bow of the boat in the shallows as the crew prepare for their final practice before the big race, one man blows his nose.
