Reel 2. Dennis Noble sings a song about "London River". Footage of him singing is intercut with footage of the Thames, Tower of London, boats, people walking to work, crowds in the streets - all very short shots.
M.C. Jack Watson does an impression of Robb Wilton. "The day war broke out...." etc. Celia Tomlin is now wearing a very skimpy "lovely assistant" outfit with sequins. We see Robb Wilton and Co. perform a courtroom skit. He plays Mr Muddlecombe J.P. The accused is in the dock because he has 75,000 flat irons. Robb asks if his wife does her own washing.
Jack Watson introduces Teddy Brown and we see the great man playing his xylophone, accompanied by musicians playing piano, double bass, guitar, saxophone and trumpet.
