"miscellany of 1950 scenes". "The city from the South West". A high angle view over roof tops with a power station also visible. "Central Leicester street upheaval summer 1950". A large crowd has gathered to watch the roundabout next to the clock tower being dug up (work on the drains?). "There's peace at Bradgate". Shots of deer in Bradgate Park. We then see shoppers in Leicester market, produce on display on the stalls and a Christmas tree in Town Hall square. This is followed by boys sledging in a park and a brief shot of a man lifting weights.
