General note

Sound track missing. Parry's list and the production number both indicate that the original film was made in 1952-1953. The Kodachrome stock in the body of the film bears edge codes from 1952 and 1954, and the phrase "1956 edition" appears under the title frame title in the A-roll. However, the titles themselves are on 1961 Ektachrome stock and the timing cards are dated 1963, suggesting a further revision in that year. Between the original production date and the 1963 revision, the sponsoring company changed its formal name twice; the sponsor credit listed is as it appears in F1981:17/049.
