  • Short Summary

    The dam by a power station is also used for yachting and swimming.

  • Description

    "In one of Germany's great generating stations where the water of the dam basin supplies the power."

    L/S of the power station. Various shots of the building and of the dam. Camera follows a yacht as it moves across the water. Low angle shot of the power station, seen through cabling and electricity transmission devices. Moving shots showing the metal construction of the power station. "The dam supplies another need - and has been made into a modern bathing pool." High angle shot of the outdoor pool with lots of bathers swimming around and spectating. C/U of two women sunbathers. Panning shot of the pool which has a nice fountain in the middle featuring a statue of a boy. M/S of two large ladies having a shower by the pool's edge. L/S of the diving board. Someone dives from the highest board.

    "Power and pleasure." Two people zoom down a wooden slide into the water. One lies on a board, the other stands on the back. Moving shot from a cable car (?) as it moves up the hillside towards the power station. View from the top of the slide as two men slide down into the water. When they hit the water they ride along a bit, rather as if on water skis.
