Titles read: "The Human Fish!"
Location of events unknown - could be Glasgow, Scotland.
C/Us of some round plates, strapped to the hands and feet of John Prentice - plate swimmer. We then see several shots of John swimming in a pool with the plates on. Commentator says the plates give a larger surface than the hands and feet, and a much greater pull is obtained. It certainly looks like an easier way to swim! Mr Prentice demonstrates several different strokes and then dives porpoise-style down to the bottom of the pool.
