Summary
MOVIETONE CARD TITLE: White Christmas. DESCRIPTION: It’s been snowing on the bonny banks of Loch Lomond, and that may well be a pointer to this season’s weather in Britain as a whole. What Scotland gets to-day, England and Wales may get tomorrow. Glasgow’s been in the thick of it already, the city presenting as wintry a scene as anyone could wish. Like it or not, you must admit it’s in the spirit of the good old-fashioned Christmas card! SHOTLIST: Key scene. GV pan Loch Lomond. MS pan to boat. GV pan shops. GV river. GV street. MS cars in street. MCU pan car. MS pan taxi. MS bus stop pan to people waiting. MS pan man walking along street. GV street. MS car being pushed. MS children rolling snowball. MCU ditto.
