• Short Summary

    Men move fish from ponds in Hungary, a cycling car and a solar furnace in action.

  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    In Hungary we see various shots of men bringing in a huge catch of fish from the ponds of Tata (sp?) that are used to restock the other waters throughout the country. The fish are put in tanks and wheeled off.

    In Durham we see a small electric cycling car made by a man called Fred Robinson. Mr Robinson drives along a road in the car, which has pedals underneath like a bike to move it along. It seems the only thing electric about it is the lights.

    At an unidentified location we see men setting up a 'solar furnace' of three frames of numerous movable mirror slats that reflect the sunlight. The reflected rays directed through a container of water burns through sheet steel. Metal bearing rock placed in the focus of the reflected rays melts away.
