Summary

The Lambert children filmed during play, a sports day and family outings in 1962.

Description

Children play in a river, splashing in the water and climbing up the banks. A fire is seen, as smoke billows into the sky. Onlookers gather and a fire truck is seen fighting the blaze. At Graysholt sports day, children participate in sprint races, the high jump, sack race, skipping race and wheelbarrow race. Girls skip in a circle holding hands, performing folk dances on a village green. Younger girls wearing fairy wings perform, skipping in circles. Tents have been erected. Scouts are seen getting on a bus. The Lambert family children and their grandfather are joined by more children. They all sit in a clearing in the woods before scrambling up a hilly path. Groups of girls perform folk dances in a garden, while adults watch from the edges behind tables. A woman conducts a choir of children from a chair, waving her warms in the air. Children play cymbals behind.
