Thanks for sharing amazing features here. I just like the valuable info you provide for your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and take a look at once more right here regularly. I am reasonably certain I’ll learn a lot of new stuff proper here. I save it on my homepage.

My husband remembers this episode from the 1960s. He has often told me about it. I believe it was an April Fool's Day joke!

This was filmed at a poultry farm in Waverley, my home town.

I think that Brian's surname may have also been spelt Lehrke, well at least that is the way his parents and grandparents spelt the name ... Great bit of film, thanks for sharing it!

@alister: thanks for the credit info. I can't find any info on Brian via a google search. Do you have an alternate spelling of his name? We'll update it when we get that info.

The credit for this. The CONCEPT and filming on 16mm film was from Brian Leurke (? spelling), stringer, news cameraman, Whanganui
