• Short Summary

    Customs of Biddenden in Kent, New York roof gardens and a schoolboy's cardboard models.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    C/U of decorative signpost in the Kent village of Biddenden showing twin sisters born 800 years ago. We then see a man handing out the traditional dole of bread and cheese to villagers through the window of a house. Visitors to the village pose with their Biddenden cakes which they are given as part of the custom.

    In New York, United States of America, we see various shots of the elaborate roof gardens on the top of a giant skyscraper (Rockefeller building, according to paperwork). People in traditional costume wander about areas of the garden built to represent typical gardens of Italy, England, Japan and Spain.

    In Streatham, London, we see various shots of 13-year-old George Dinnage building models out of cardboard. He is unable to go to school because of ill-health, and this is his hobby. Shots of his finished cars and other vehicles. George and his brother Harry sit in the garden with a woman (their mother or sister?) and look at a cardboard model village they have built.
