Summary: A information piece on the work of AFBA, the Aden Forces Broadcasting Authority, responsible for the forces' radio entertainment. A short sequence in the middle of the reel shows an Army street patrol.
Description: (i) An initial sequence shows the general working of the AFBA organisation from initial programming to the reception of broadcast music in a serviceman's apartment. (ii) The mid-section (320 - 405 ft) shows an Army street patrol in Aden. The men carry FN rifles, but a corporal carries a Sterling SMG and a Schermuly pistol. All have gas masks pulled up over their heads, ready for instant use. A soldier surveys the roof tops, his left hand ready on the cocking handle of his rifle. There is then a short beach scene with a toddler at play and adults relaxing in deckchairs. (iii) The AFBA sequence is repeated.
