• Short Summary

    A home-made 'Robot Boy' and a Dalek come face to face in a suburban garden.

  • Description

    Horsham, West Sussex.

    Several shots show a home-made 'Robot Boy' and a Dalek in a suburban back garden. The maker, Victor Sherlock, sits with some young boys on the back doorstep; one of the boys is sitting inside a model spaceship. The robot is apparently worked by remote control; Victor sits with a remote control box that he seems to be speaking into.

    The robot walks towards a lawnmower, then Victor makes some adjustments to the robot's head. He then lifts the head off to reveal that his son, Peter, is inside the robot suit.
