Walker's narration script and content notes in file F1990:14.
This reel had been alienated from the Tommy Walker accession prior to its 1990 donation. It has now been re-integrated with the other Walker films. A version of this film appears to have been broadcast on the CBC television series "Klahanie" some time in the early 1970s.
