The first fresh vegetables
Week number 43-12
Newsreels in which Dutch subjects of a certain week are presented.
The vegetables in the greenhouses of the Westland that were grown during the winter are "harvested". Spinach, lettuce and turnip tops are picked and put into crates, after which the crates are transported by a small barge.
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.
