Rumania, 1964

“London exhibition. Two teenage girls (twins) look at some of the Rumanian Craftware on display at the exhibition. Rumanian women demonstrate weaving techniques.

Rumania – countryside. Farmer and his herd of cows. Scenic shots of the countryside. Carpathian Mountains. Narrator details some of Rumania’s history. Scenes at a racecourse. The tote. Bookmakers. Trotting race. Narrator makes jokes about the Rumanians being capitalists. Chairlift at the skiing resort of Poiana Brasov. Various shots of the countryside – some views from the moving chairlift. “Sport Hotel” with holidaymakers drinking cocktails. Museum opens its gates – ornate architecture. Churches and monastery in Moldavia.”

This is the very British way of describing a very British documentary about Romania. From 1964. Delightful. Watch it below, or here, where you can also read the full script.

Thanks Alina for the tip!
