Shotlist: [opening credits] DEAR LITTLE JAMMY FACE SONG Shots of a girl (Avril Dunnachie?) knitting and a boy eating jam on bread. The boy is shown with jam all over his face as a song about the boy and the girl is played. The girl goes and sits beside the boy, takes his hand and gives him a kiss on the cheek before running away. The girl then performs handstands and dances for the boy. The song continues about how the girl loves the jammy faced boy and about how she wants a slice of what he’s eating. The boy says no and the girl begins to cry. The boy comes over to comfort the girl as the song continues saying that, to make her feel better, he will let her kiss him twice. The boy is then shown rummaging in his pockets. He then picks a rose from the garden and gives it to the girl who puts it in her hair. Shot of the girl and the boy kissing before they go and sit together on a bench. The girl begins to knit again and the boy begins to eat jam on bread again. Shot of a baby (Robin Dunnachie) sitting on his mother’s knee (Mrs Dunnachie). The mother gives the baby a cracker with jam on it and he begins to eat it. ecs
