    TRANSCRIPTS:


    1.
    OH Well, here at least. Another loveable member of the human race. But I wonder why they call it a race.


    2.
    Oh, I see-maybe we really do have to race. It all seems a bit childish, but I suppose I'd better join in.


    3.
    And this must be where they get the saying from "They're off.


    4.
    It does seem to keep the dads and mums happy though. But we aren't all that strong yet.


    5.
    Hello-they're off again.


    6.
    Some kids like to keep in training.


    7.
    But it is possible to become muscle-bound-like this 10 month old. I he over do the training. But they say that to slim you should swim.


    8.
    And this bunch of 5 month old American babies are pretty good at it. Look out mum you're drowning yours. Oh its alright - he's come up again. No wonder the Americans win all the Olympic swimming medals.


    9.
    And they're not too bad at gold either as this 2 year old shows, fore!


    10.
    You know we kids are pretty intelligent at four and.


    11.
    This one playing here, is actually ordained as preacher and here he is conducting a wedding ceremony.



    CHILD: "Anna, wilt take this man to be thy wedded husband to live together in Gods ordinance in the holy estate of matrimony, wilt thou have him honour, cherish him and keep him in sickness and in health, and leaving all others cleave only onto him as long as ye both shall live".



    COMM: Of course she does son.



    CHILD: "Husband and wife together, in the name of the father the son and the holy spirit, and those that god has joined together, let no man put asunder - Simon kiss your bride."



    COMM: It could only happen in America.


    12.
    Hey we've forgotten about the girls.



    GIRL: "This is a 38 officers moller".



    COMM: "This little Annie Oakley is five years old".



    GIRL: "I'm going to try and break to pieces of chalk at 45 feet."



    All the boys are mad about her.


    13.
    Well, they're mad about some thing..And the heavy weight title is at stake.



    GIRL: "Good luck darling".



    COMM: Hey this one's a pushover. Match out son. Uh, oh, they're off again. But tits a friendly bout, and here came reinforcements. But now it's getting really rough. Er, I've just remembered, actually I've got an appointment.


    14.
    Eventually we reach manhood, like this 20 year old man. Is he a record?.


    15.
    His girlfriend's only 19 and lives in his pocket.


    16.
    Naturally they're getting married and will have little ones of their own.


    17.
    But this boy isn't one of theirs. He's 8ft 4 inches tall and on the strength of him the junior school formed a ports club.


    18.
    But this is the only game they'll allow.


    19.
    This is his dad's bed, he has a very peculiar holiday indeed. Go on, hit me again.


    20.
    Mum's odd as well. She's got very good teeth - they have to be to carry her over Times Square twice a day. It could be the travel of the future you know. Notice the teeth.


    21.
    These aren't teeth. They're knees, and these Grandads belong to the vintage penny farthing society-Hey, you're cheating. This is for foot power only. Fly Off! As in every race, there is a winner, and this year the winners resemblance to Mr Acker Bilk is purely coincidental. Listen to these pearls of wisdom.



    COMM: To what do you attribute your amazing success in this race, Mr Van Winkle?.



    OLD MAN: "I've been a cyclist 50 years. I'm non smoker tee totaler, I go to bed early and there's no monkey business."


    22.
    It's the human race again this time on bulls How on earth do you make a bull race?.


    23.
    It's easier with ostriches-you feed them an orange then they go like the clappers. He's a jockey - on or off, more of than on! Have you ever tried to keep a drunken ostrich straight?.


    24.
    Winter makes no difference-the will to race is still strong. These snowmen are racing 2,000 mils across Canada on snowshoes. Actually they're hunting.


    25.
    For Girls! But so are these fellows and one man's trying to fish his out-oops he's missed.


    26.
    The Oxford and Cambridge eights are also in the hunt.


    27.
    Look out, (Lance) Here he come again. Whoops - missed again.


    28.
    Meanwhile back at Henley, It's still (Intelligible words) (canoeists)


    29.
    (AEROPLANE AND SKIER) "Yes, he's got himself a girl.


    30.
    (Basket Race) And in this race, if you want to get ahead, you've got to get a hat or a basket or lots of baskets. As these silly porters from convent garden have. That's is, madam hit the porter. Give the prize to the man with the flattest head.


    31.
    Stop me and but one - Not this time. It's a race in dead earnest. He's in one of the boxes. 1,000 butchers bakers and candlestick makers and delivery boys racing through the streets. But the secret is in knowing when to stop. Objection to the winner, pending a dope and breathyliser test.
    ]

    32.
    No use breathalysing this lot. They're carrying the booze in their hands. What is a Midinaire anyway, hello this (Unintelligible).


    34.
    And if only they can get these barrels home, these fellows won't be fit for work in the morning.


    35.
    Meanwhile back at the forum, Charlton Heston was practicing for the big race, everyone was there including the Prime Minister, and


    36.
    George and Jim Battled it out in the arena


    37.
    But Mr Heston, having got into the lead couldn't stop his nags.


    38.
    Gray Paris-and what a nice say for a run. Right to the top of the tower. Anybody puffing? and when they get there-so what they've got to walk all this way down again.


    39.
    It's better to race on the flat, like these Paris footmen. Come on - you'll miss the last post. But if you want a cure for bunions


    40.
    How about a nice clean swim?-all through Paris, 10 miles along the Seine. Con on, Call yourself a Frenchman, you're not even doing the breast stroke


    42.
    This is an odd one too! A Five mile orange rolling race for fillies of 20 year old an upwards is better looking than the Penny Farthing race winner.


    41.
    Here England holds the record-its a slim kicking competition. It's a bit like football, without the ball. But youth must have the final word-we'll listen to this.


    43.
    But the older you get, the sillier you get. And here England holds the world championship-a shinkicking competition it's a bit like football, without the ball. But youth must have the final word - we'll listen to this.


    44.
    GIRL: "(UNINTELLIGIBLE) are about to show you the largest tambourine class in the world-came on kiddies let's show them."


    45.
    This poor woman, is the girls music teacher.


    46.
    Turn it off girls, I'm trying to sleep.
