Centuries ago, even as far back as the time of the ancient Egyptians, animal hides and skins were dressed for leather. Today, of course, leather is used very much more extensively, and viewers will see several interesting examples. The programme will open with a 'shot' of an old-time cobbler, a typical craftsman of a past age, and then models will show the influence of leather on modern fashions. In this afternoon's programme there will be a display of golf, flying, and motoring suits, and in the evening programme at 9.0 bags and hats, all made of leather, will be shown.
