    Miners race dogs across field.

  • Description

    Dog Racing - miners racing dog across field.

    Location unknown - somewhere in Britain.

    Dog race held in a farmer's field by miners. Spectators leaning on stone wall. Dog owners calling their dogs; one man squats waving white scarf. 1 dog sprints in (but being in slow motion it doesn't really give the right idea) a good deal ahead of others. CU of another dog eating. CU winning dog looking at cam; wagging his tail.

    Shot of start of a race; as the men let the dogs go and they run past cam to left. CU man in dark suit & cap; w/ binoculars. Rather funny shot of the winner dog running past a few nonchalant cows who keep grazing. Other dogs follow. More CUs dogs eating.

    Then cut to what was probably the start. Crowd standing around; cars parked in field. Shot of a man taking bets? CU 2 cute dogs in car. Look like spaniels. Men gathered round the bookie. Leading dogs to starting line - climbing over fence; etc. Pan on dogs & owners.

    Entertainment; sports; animals.
