  • Short Summary

    Much funny business as the Mayor of Bradford meets University students, dressed for their 'rag' week.

  • Description

    Full titles read: '"Rag Times" - Students hold "rag" in aid of local hospitals.'

    Bradford, Yorkshire.

    M/S pan across numerous university students in fancy dress costume; two students dressed as policeman hit a man in Indian costume over the head with sausages. Nice M/S pan across several girls, smiling and shaking their collection boxes. M/S shows the Mayor of Bradford looking at the students on the steps of a building; the students seem to sing to him. The Mayor checks behind the ears of a student dressed as a schoolboy and blows the boy's nose. Another student (looks like a man in drag) presents the Mayor with some flowers - he is rewarded with a kiss!
