Short amateur film on amateur bee-keeping, shot on a farm in Pinner.
Bee-keeping without the bonnet. This instructional film from the silent era uses inter-titles and startling demonstrations – one scene has the instructor scooping handfuls of bees like ice cream to show their 'docility' - to illustrate how one can handle bees without protection. From transferring of the hive to the extraction and communal enjoyment of honey, this is essential viewing for any budding apiarist.
