    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unknown or unclear.

    Self-service shopping at London wholesale Co-op Society - Barking, Essex.

    Various shots of women walking around a new Co-op supermarket, selecting goods from shelves and putting them into wire baskets. A woman with a small child takes a packet of tea (?) off the shelf and looks at it. The child puts a packet in the basket for her. Natural sound for some shots gives good sense of atmosphere in one of these new-fangled supermarkets.

    General view of people walking about in the shop. C/U of a hand placing a bottle of sauce into a wire basket. The woman and child walk up to the counter where a female assistant proceeds to tot up goods.

    C/U head shot of the woman as we hear the assistant say "Good morning, how do you like the self service?". The woman replies "Oh, I think it's fine. I find it saves me an awful lot of time in the mornings. So handy if you only want one article. You can just pop in and take it off the shelf and pop off again quickly without any queues. So much nicer."

    Sound is intermittent.
