A primary school sports day and some views of Wick from 1933
22nd June 2020
The film opens on a boat coming into Wick harbour and we get an impression of how busy the harbour is. A brief view of the town is given, with a panning shot looking over Bridge Street toward the mouth of the river. From there the film moves to the sports day of North School. We first see a procession of children carrying standards and instruments. We see footage of the crowd interspaced between some of the events, such as highland dancing, high jump and the sack race. A mixture of close and wide shots pick out individuals and the crowd as a whole.
