MOS EXCELLENT shots (in beautiful color) of cattle ranches, cowboys herding cattle, cattle auction. Butcher cutting sides of beef. SUPERB early 1960s backyard barbecue (at roughly 0:24:00), CU hamburgers cooking on the grill. Early 1960s family eating hamburgers outdoors in their backyard. Great shot (at 0:25:08) of man wearing chef's hat and apron ("Genius At Work") putting thick, juicy steaks on the barbecue grill. For barbecue shots, you couldn't do better than this film!!

Explores the issues junior high and high schools were facing surrounding teen drug use. Looks at several very integrated public schools and programs being developed in them to prevent drug abuse. Some nice images of 1970s teens looking very stoned. This film can be purchased on DVD and higher quality versions of the film can be purchased for stock footage purposes. Contact footage@avgeeks.com for more information.
