• Short Summary

    Baby boy swimmer, eggs sent from England to Australia and a stuntman on a New York roof.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of and 15-month-old boy called Billy Sipple (sp?) with his mother, going for a swim in an outdoor pool in Bushey, Hertfordshire. He hangs onto his mother while she swims along, then has a go on his own. His mother hands him a piece of chocolate after their swim.

    Short shot of an aeroplane in flight. C/Us of a box of eggs, sent from a poultry farm in England to an address in Brisbane, Australia by air mail. We see the box being opened to show numerous eggs surrounded by protective card and cotton wool. Shot of a chicken with some chicks in another box - this is the hen who sat on the British eggs and these are the chicks that hatched from them!

    In New York, United States of America, we see various shots of a woman sitting on the shoulders of a man while he walks along the edge of a high building - blindfold! We see the same man balancing on a chair balanced on another chair on the edge (no blindfold for this stunt). He then stands on the chairs - he almost falls but recovers - eek!
