• Short Summary

    Horseshoe pitching in America, a girl's wendy house and canoe stunter Bertrand in action.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    In the United States of America we see several shots of men playing horseshoe pitching at a special enclosure. They are competing for the National Championships. Jimmy Risk is one of the players we see. Ted Allen, wearing a shirt labelled 'World's Champion', wins the title - as he throws his horseshoes a man puts his head and hand on the post they land around - yikes! Each one is spot on.

    In Stocksfield on Tyne, Northumberland, we see a little girl called Mary Ann having some friends round for tea at her concrete wendy house. It seems to have been built next to her family's house in the garden. Through the window we see her pouring tea for another little girl. Nice shot of Mary Ann looking out of a window at us.

    In the South of France we see crowds gathering to watch canoe stunter Bertrand jump from the top of a sluice wall to the waters foaming through the sluice gates 30 feet below. Bertrand comes walking along, carrying his canoe on his head. He climbs over the top of the wall and jumps into the water with the canoe. For a moment we cannot see him, but he soon resurfaces among the rapid water, gets into his canoe and paddles along. (Wow!)
