Doctor Cyril Francis is seen driving a four-wheel dog cart with Lionel Hampden sitting alongside. During an interview conducted whilst driving the doctor reveals that he is 81-years-old, drives about 75 to 80 miles a week and believes that he can get about Hereford faster by pony and trap than if he was driving a car.

Doctor Francis had earlier been featured on Midlands News 12 January 1965 and is also interviewed in Meet the Mayor: Hereford from 1968. This item was shown at the Borderlines Film Festival in Hereford in 2006. According to their publicity, when the horse died Dr Francis had it stuffed and it stood in his surgery. This is apparently an urban myth exposed by Hereford museum staff. Dr Francis did have a stuffed pony in his surgery in Hereford but it had been an earlier gift from Queen Victoria to his family and was not one that pulled his cart.
