Ulster plays to the camera in these delightful scenes by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
The idyllic hawthorn hedges cut to the starting line of the Long Kesh race course, both reflecting Antrim. As people tinker in the pits you see the contrast of old and ‘new’ cars. The Old Crocks’ romp across the finish line. The pace slows as a military band are ‘beating the retreat’ at dusk in Holywood. Finally, there are boisterous scenes from a Children’s Gymkhana in Clandeboye Estate. As it ends glimpse riders racing to the nearest sack in an equine version of musical chairs.
