  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    In Middlesex we see 62-year-old Dinkie Bowles laying a trail for the farmers drag hunt in the countryside. Dickie wears a striped rugby shirt and some grubby long shorts as he runs through the countryside. Several shots of people in fox hunting gear follow on behind with hounds.

    In Verarlberg, Austria, we see a snowplough making its way through the snow that fell during an avalanche. A tunnel has been cut through the solid snow that closed a pass. Shots inside the tunnel show men walking about with pickaxes.

    In Styria, Austria, we see timbermen cutting down trees and chopping logs that will be used to make railway sleepers. Men use machines to make holes in the sleepers and put screws into position. The sleepers go up a conveyor belt and into a wagon.
