• Short Summary

    When typists get bored they look out of the window at their company's penguin pool!

  • Description

    Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

    M/S of a statue which features large birds. The statue is outside a modern office block and has water flowing over it. The statue is "symbolic of the firm's animal interest".

    Interior of office, C/U of woman's hands typing. Camera tilts up to show the girl typing. The company wanted to give their staff something pleasant to look at through the office windows so they have installed a penguin pool. Various shots of a man feeding the penguins while the typist looks out of the window. There are a few flamingos too!

    Great idea, can we have a penguin pool?

    The building seen here is Walton Court, and was once the headquarters of Birds Eye frozen foods.
