Description

This film was made by an amateur filmmaker who was a farmer from Reighton, near Filey, North Yorkshire. It features the filmmaker as he takes time to work at one of his favourite hobbies.

The film opens with a shot of the children in the front room. They are watching television and playing with some of the family pets: kittens and a dog.

The rest of the film features two men who are working to edit 8mm film. One of the men winds the film through a small viewer, examining which parts of the newly developed films he plans to use. The two men have a shot break for tea and biscuits, raising the tea cup in a cheers to the camera, before swiftly moving onto more editing.
