Description: This extended five-minute film contains shot after shot of cuddly kittens and dashing dogs. Proof, were it needed, that long before the internet, the British public loved looking at cute creatures. Filmed at Alexandra Palace – there’s a nice interior shot - and Crystal Palace during animal shows, the unbearably cute highlights include five fluffy kittens in a wicker basket, and a tiny puppy licking the nose of a gargantuan Great Dane. Ah!
