The numbers are drawn that could make one French person very rich.
Full title reads: "Paris. The French National Lottery. Thousands inside and outside famous Trocadero hear their luck, in first of seven series of draws for 2 1/2 million pounds."
Men spin large spheres containing balls from which selections will be made in lottery draw.
A man shouts out the numbers as they are drawn. People in the crowd turn away when they realise they are not going to win. When the final number is selected a board is lifted up to show the audience in the Trocadero theatre the winning number.
