• Short Summary

    Elephants 'playing' music, roses grown for perfume and Moscow's overhead railway.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In Vienna, Austria, we see several shots of an elephants playing instruments in a 'jazz band' - in fact the music is more like traditional Austrian stuff, not jazz! A small crowd watches while the elephants beat drums, dance in time with bells on their feet, turn a handle to crash cymbals and so on. Cute or cruel, depending on your point of view.

    In Bulgaria we see the cultivation of roses for perfume - attar of roses - at Sofia. Nice shots of roses growing and men planting briar seeds. Seedlings are transplanted and roses grafted on, then the flowers are harvested.

    Several shots of the overhead railway or monorail in Moscow's Park of Culture (Russia). Good shots of the streamlined double car zooming around the rail.
