  • Description

    ROYAL NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR THE BLIND

    Title "Lighten our darkness". A little boy in dark glasses drives in his toy car to some steps. He gets out and very carefully climbs the steps. Other young blind children play in an R.N.I.B Nursery School garden. Various good (and very sweet) shots of the children climbing on and off a table, running around, climbing a rope net, and stroking a rabbit. Inside, a little girl, smells and touches some flowers on a table. CU her very pretty face. A little girl walks down some stairs with her doll. She drops it and feels around on the floor to find it again. CU a little girl looking at a book - it's upside down. CU a little girl completing a jigsaw. A group of children pass round a dish of sweets. Shots of children in their bathroom, cleaning their teeth, brushing their hair. In her bedroom a little girl puts away her dressing gown and says her prayers by her bed. Heartwarming and charming stuff with very moving comentary by a female narrator.
    End title: "By the courtesy of the Management a collection will be taken at this theatre."
