Made by filmmaker Lucy Fairbank, this is part two of a travelogue of a trip around part of pre-war Europe. The film also includes rare footage of Adolf Hitler before the outbreak of the Second World War. The special jubilee season of the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1934, marking the 300-year anniversary of the original vow to re-enact Jesus' Passion and Suffering every ten years thereafter, was the first performance after the Nazi regime's rise to power the year previous. Among other things, the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda ordered the official poster for the jubilee season amended to include the message "Deutschland ruft dich!" ("Germany is calling you!"), and the Kraft durch Freude scheme's discount-travel programme offered special cut-rate packages to the Passion Play, including rail fare, tickets and accommodations.
This is one of a collection of films made by the Selby Cine Club.

It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
Travelogue by Middlesbrough based amateur filmmaker Tom H. Brown that records a grand tour through Italy in the summer of 1949 with his wife, Kate.

The film focuses on the architecture, famous landmarks and monuments that they visit, and includes footage of traditional religious costume and the ceremonial costume of the Papal Swiss Guards at the Vatican. A short sequence documents a march by Italian Communist Party supporters in Pisa, and political graffiti in the town.
