    Aluminium foil is used to help promote a suntan and to help keep picnic food cool.

  • Description

    Roehampton, London.

    Sun worshippers use a large aluminium covered sun reflector to improve on their tans. A bronzed couple lie beside an open air swimming pool. C/U of them lying in the sun. C/U of a woman applying sun cream.

    Man carries a large piece of board which is covered with aluminium foil. He positions the reflector beside a woman in a swimsuit who lies on a lilo - great sunglasses. The man opens a picnic basket and pulls out lots of packages wrapped in foil. Narrator observes that foil can keep things cool as well as for roasting (not chickens but humans).
