• Short Summary

    Odd things including an automatic garage door and a car park attendant in shining armour.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Would you believe it? Queer things the world over. No. 10. "

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots show a man driving up to his garage. He leans out of the window to turn a key in a post then pulls a lever and the garage doors open. He drives inside.

    General views of the village of Bearsted in Kent. Several shots of the local car park attendant who is dressed in a suit of armour. He opens the door of a car and a lady gets out.

    In the United States of America we see an Alsatian dog "playing baseball" - he actually just catches the ball when it is thrown to him (we don't see him batting!).

    Also in America we see a cat who travelled across the country on a train and then came back with two little striped kittens. The kittens are seen on the train with their mother, then she carries one by the scruff of its neck across the platform while the other follows on behind.
