  • Description

    Women Athletes / Women Athletics. Issue title is 'See How They Run'.

    Location of events unknown.

    Various shots of women taking part in an athletics competition. We see them taking part in various events: sprinting, long jump, high jump, hurdling, discus and javelin. Some shots are in slow motion.

    Cataloguers' note: commentary is a bit patronising - the narrator seems amazed at the physical prowess of these weak girlies! Example of commentary: "with the javelin for practice, there's nothing the modern girl can't throw when she's married, from parties to pots and pans". AH 2001.
