In this delightful family film from Preston in Lancashire, we meet baby Gary at home with his proud parents. Whether being wheeled about in his new pram, or cuddled and admired by relatives, he is the centre of attention. To celebrate his christening, there is a grand family get-together with a lavish spread of food, and, of course, the film camera is on hand to record this happy event.
