    Children climb trees at modern school and the real Mademoiselle from Armentieres - maybe.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    At St Alfred's School in Hampstead, London, we see various shots of children climbing trees. Commentator says the pupils at this school are encouraged to develop their individuality. We see several boys in a tree house they have built in one of the school trees. Shot of ominous clouds in the sky. Speeded up footage of the children climbing down the tree from the tree house.

    In the Thuringian Forests in Germany, we see men constructing rafts on the River Saale. Men guide the rafts down rapids of the treacherous river. This is how the timber from the forest is transported down to the mills.

    Shots of the war-torn and battle-damaged town of Armentieres in France. Commentator talks of the real 'Mademoiselle of Armentieres' (First World War song) and says that she recently broadcast from the BBC Studios. Sequence showing Mrs Rogers talking to a man in a suit (in the Pathe Studio?). She says (with heavy French accent) that she was a mademoiselle and she comes from Armentieres but doesn't claim to be the immortal mademoiselle of the famous war song. The man asks did she find much damage done to her house when she returned after the war. She says yes but shows him a box that remained intact.
