VIDEO – Romania and the country brand of the 60’s

VIDEO:  Travelogue showing the delights of Rumania.

London exhibition. Two teenage girls (twins) look at some of the Rumanian Craftware on display at the exhibition. Rumanian women demonstrate weaving techniques.

Rumania – countryside. Farmer and his herd of cows. Scenic shots of the countryside. Carpathian Mountains. Narrator details some of Rumania’s history. Scenes at a racecourse. The tote. Bookmakers. Trotting race. Narrator makes jokes about the Rumanians being capitalists. Chairlift at the skiing resort of Poianna Brasov. Various shots of the countryside – some views from the moving chairlift. „Sport Hotel” with holidaymakers drinking cocktails. Museum opens its gates – ornate architecture. Churches and monastery in Moldavia.

Narrator speaks of how Rumania is reaching westwards for new ideas and inspiration. New buildings and roadways. An oil rig – a sightseeing attraction in Bucharest’s permanent industrial exhibition. Tourists arrive aboard a Caravelle aircraft with the word „Sabena” on the side. Landmarks of Bucharest seen from a car. Traffic warden is seen. High angle shot of a street market. Woman chooses some flowers to buy.

Housing – blocks of flats. The new concert hall and the home of the circus – Big Top Deluxe. People lounging beside a hotel swimming pool – it has a wave machine. Mamaia Rumania’s summer beach resort is featured. Nice shots of people on the beach then holidaymakers relaxing beside their tents in a campsite. Man uses a chest expander whilst his friend laughs. Girl feeds a foal with a bottle.

Fruit stall with a display to commemorate the August revolution of 1944. Various shots of hotels and bright lights at night. Narrator gives the hard sell: „Suspicious, sullen Rumania is really a vivacious young girl, flirting with Western ideas and beckoning the tourist to come just a little further afield in the search for fun and bright lights. For some it could be love at first sight.”
