Scenes at an Archaeological dig (possibly at Fishbourne Roman Palace?) include people looking on. A sign reads 'Please stand well clear of edges of sections and trenches'. A girl is filmed holding and stroking an animal. On agricultural land there are shots of a combine harvester working in corn field. A tractor is then filmed loading sugar beet onto a lorry (a sign on the lorry reads: 'Joint British Railways, Bulk haulage..Supplied by Tamplins of Brighton). Various scenes with boy Scouts follow, including a group standing outside a building; two boys and their mother(?) outside a house; A group of Scouts holding a prize shield and Scouts playing an outdoor ball game.
