Good footage of character singer Robert Layton singing 'Lighterman Tom'.
Note: Probably filmed in the Pathe studio.
Titles read: "The New Empire Review presents :- ROBERT LAYTON - the well known West End and BBC Character Singer in 'Lighterman Tom'."
Several shots of Robert Layton singing. He wears traditional fisherman's clothing and holds a pipe. The item is intercut with good footage of ships and yachts at sea as well barges on the River Thames.
