• Short Summary

    A water ski extravaganza for our entertainment, courtesy of Theale Water Ski Circus.

  • Description

    Reading, Berkshire.

    Various shots of a water ski display by Theale Water Ski Circus on a lake; crowds of people watch from the lakeside as teams of girl whizz past, Jon Pertwee zips past in a tin bath; a girl standing on the shoulders of two men speed along. One man goes over a water ski jump.

    Some nice M/Ss of spectators. Several comedy / slapstick performers go by on water skis; four men in black on a single float are supposed to be The Beatles. A man floats along on a hang-glider, drops onto the water to water ski, then takes off again, towed by a motor boat.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
