This film was made during the Centenary Royal Show in 1972, to commemorate 100 years of traditional partnership between the Department of Agriculture and the Royal Agriculture Society in the Royal Show. Using locations sound and music only, the film aims to give an impression of the contrasting facets of the Melbourne Show, and how it sets out to attract a wide range of people, mainly from urban areas.
