A worker works during the day on a scaffold to restore the tower of the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft; in the evening he does woodwork. A postman delivers the mail during the day in Leiden; in the evening he translates printed texts into braille with a braille typewriter.

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.
