  • Description

    No titles.

    Unidentified countryside location in Britain.

    Sheep grazing in a field. Various shots of an old, bearded shepherd, 'Old Bob', sitting in the grass and talking to his young grandson, George (rustic-looking lad chewing on a piece of grass or corn).

    We are told that Bob is handing his flocks over to George and is showing him "the ways of a quiet and noble calling". The two men walk over to a fence and look at their sheep. George takes the crook from Bob, climbs over the fence and walks over to the sheep.
