Description

Tyne Tees Television footage showing a crew of eight rowers warming up before taking to a river, possibly the Wear near Durham, where they are filmed rowing on the water as part of a training exercise. This report was transmitted 26 July 1967.

The report begins with a crew of eight male rowers warming up beside a building. They do a few squats and then push-ups. The crew pick up their racing boat and carry it down to the river’s edge. They lower it into the water and climb in.

General views follow of the boat racing along the river. A young boy or woman sits at the stern as coxswain. At one point, one of the rowers falls out of the boat and the rest of the team laugh.
