Starting with chickens this colour film, from 1939, moves to swans and peacocks at Arundel Castle. Then we see a miniature railway in Farnborough and a tranquil summer garden near Liphook. After more scenes of children, pets and flowers, we see the last peacetime Sports Day at Wallop School in Weybridge, before returning to the miniature railway. Finally, we see the family's Anderson shelter 'walking' towards the hole that's been prepared for it in the garden.
