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

    Various locations of events.

    C/U panning across an old, bearded man called Joseph Clark, flanked by his two sons. The sons pick up a 10 hundred weight girder on their shoulders and walk off across a yard. Other men and their father look on. One of the sons balances on the other one's arm - the lifter also picks up a 56 lb weight for good measure with the other hand. The final stunt shows 86-year-old Mr Clark lying down with a plank on his front. Two of his sons climb up and stand on the plank. Another 4 stone is added to the plank - 29 stone altogether! (Location is somewhere in England.)

    At an unidentified location we see various shots of a lion tamer man in a cage with 5 lions. He gets them to stand on plinths on their hind legs. One lion stands on two posts while the man forces its jaws open and puts his head inside.

    In the United States of America we see a man taming fish. He holds fish heads in the water and large fish eat out of his hand. Some turtles keep getting in the way so the man tosses them roughly to one side!
