    River Thames, London.

    Point of view shots from sight-seeing boat going down Thames, passing Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

    Various C/U panning shots of moving 3-D model of the River Thames made by Frank E. Norman. The model starts off as Medieval London, then changes to Victorian and Modern London.

    Various C/U of model of River Thames around Docklands with model ships and model of Tower Bridge (looks like opening credits to Eastenders!). Various shots of model railway running through a set that looks like Docklands.

    Various shots of men in a workshop making another model of Thames - this one is on a grander scale. We see men looking at original plans for Tower Bridge for help in recreating the bridge in the model. Various shots of same men making model of River Clyde in Scotland, complete with model of 'Queen Mary' ocean liner.
