    Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.

    Various shots of the Bill Hall Trio, which includes Spike Milligan, playing a unique version of "The Canary" on violin, double bass and guitar. One looks to be dressed like an undertaker, Spike looks like a hillbilly with big false black beard, the other wears a flat cap and looks miserable.

    Aside from Spike Milligan, the two other members of the Bill Hall Trio seen here are Bill Hall himself (on violin) and Johnny Mulgrew (double bass).
