• Short Summary

    Fishermen in coracles in Wales and a dog called Gypsy shows how smart she is in a garden.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    Various shots of four men using coracle fishing boats in Wales. They sit paddling their one-man boats on a river and cast a large fishing net between them. The net is dragged up river, the two ends brought together and hauled in - there is nothing in the net though! They go back to the river bank and carry their coracles off, upside down on their heads.

    We then see several shots of a dog called Gypsy in a garden doing several tricks (exact location unknown - somewhere in England). She first takes some playing cards out of a box, then takes a box of matches out of her owner's pocket and eats them. She brings her master his paper.

    Visuals cut out at 01:36:55, sound continues to end. Don't know what we missed but commentator says "Look at that! Who said Gypsy was a lady?".
