A documentary made by Betty and Cyril Ramsden, this film shows how bees pollinate different flowers. The couple were semi-professional filmmakers filming both for pleasure and taking on commissions from companies such as the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Title-Winged Workers

The film opens with shots taken in close up of a bee at the centre of a flower retrieving pollen. The film continues with more shots of other bees in a garden, also retrieving pollen from many different varieties of flower. In some of the shots, all the detail of their bodies can be seen. Some are covered in pollen. The film continues in this manner until the end.
