Colour footage of a lively Student Rag Parade. Judo demonstrations turn into a brawl when the Rag Day Parade takes over a rainy Belfast city centre.
This film rewards repeat viewers with a Rag parade that is bursting with satirical mischief. Watch the morbid fascination as a woman is delivered to the executioner from the crowd. The next float is perhaps an effigy of Ruth Ellis, the last woman executed in the UK in 1955. A toilet roll flung into the air reveals Belfast City Hall is the location of this rambunctious parade. This film ends abruptly with a mysterious fleeting shot in the dark of a car whizzing past the camera.
