Keeper Verkade has been working at the Zoo in The Hague for fourty years. He feeds a monkey with a spoon and two cubs with a feeding bottle.

During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
