Take a tour de France as cyclists double up for a tandem race through Paris's Bois de Boulogne.
Non-Fiction 1929 1 mins Silent
A team of 'crack French cyclists' double up for a tandem race through the Bois de Boulogne, the public park in Paris's western suburbs, in this chirpy newsreel item. Though styling itself 'The Great British newsreel', Topical Budget would occasionally venture abroad in the hunt for news items with a quirky twist; this slice of Gallic sporting life was shown in British cinemas in September 1929.
