    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A short trailer film telling people going abroad that they are can only take £5 in cash with them.

    CU pile of bank notes.

    MS Richard Massingham grabbing money and shouting 'I'm going abroad - hurray'. CU glass of champagne being poured. CU his face. CU plate of mussels. CU man's face smiling. CU knife cutting into steak. Pan with fork as steak is put into man's mouth to eat. CU Glass of champagne being poured and drunk.

    Neon lights for French nightclubs are superimposed over champagne bubbles. MS Dancing girls appear. MS roulette table with bubbles. CU pretty girl's face.

    MS Man stuffing pound notes into his jacket top pocket. Voiceover warns the man he is not allowed to take so much cash with him.

    CU Travellers' cheques. CU five pound notes. CU man's ear as he listens. CU as he turns to face camera with sad look on his face. CU he nods his head to show that he understands what the voiceover is telling him.

    Title reads: "£5 Notes". CU man's face looking rather cross. Titles flash "£5 in Notes". CU man's hand - five digits held out." CU man's foot - five toes held out. CU five pound notes.

    CU man's face as realisation strikes him that he can only take five pounds of sterling out of the country. He raises five pound notes to cover his face.
