Description

This is part of the collection of films made by Sheffield teacher William Gordon Gregory.  This is some brief excerpts from other films featuring children in school theatre productions, some of it double exposed.

The film begins with a boy sharpening an arrow head with a make-shift blade to go onto a spear being used in a school production of an Iron Age film, of which a small excerpt is here shown.  Then the film switches to a senior school girl posing in an 18th century costume.  This is followed by another senior school girl posing in an 18th century costume, with an intertitle superimposed above it: “below the buried vegetation slowly turned to coal”.   Then there is a third senior school girl posing in an 18th century costume, again with an intertitle superimposed above: “so was formed millions of years ago”.
