Cuts from newsreel story 48/70 - Town Criers' Contest in Lyme Regis, Dorset.
Various shots of town criers in action at contest. Mostly C/Us of faces and hand ringing bells. C/U of a crier ringing his bell, then going into his spiel, with a heartfelt "Ohyeya!". He's quite good and manages to shout loudly while only opening one corner of his mouth. M/S of three men ringing their bells.
Cataloguer's note: I think these town criers are very funny.
