  • Description

    Rabbit and Vegetable Show, Leyton in London.

    Shot of people gathered in front of platform with speaker. Pan over large crowd of people in a big open space in park; looks like summer day; umbrellas for shade People crowding together along long line of tables where vegetables are on display. CU 3 men stand behind fence; they all reach over fence (off screen). CU Men setting potatoes on table in front of the fence; each potato sits by a card. Pan right along potatoes of various odd shapes; with the men's hands still holding them.

    CU Rabbits on a table; people sort of picking them up; brushing them; arranging them; little boy peeking round an adult. Most of the bunnies lie there stock still as if they are dead because they are probably terrified. CU man lifts rabbit and examines it as a bunch of men anxiously watch; sign 'Rabbits' in BG over their heads. He lifts more rabbits. CU another longer look at a rabbit; this one struggles a bit and the judge pets it; the rabbit looks over his arm at camera.

    Animals; wacky. Contests; agriculture.
