The Friesian Elfstedentocht of 1942. SHOTS: - participants gather in the hall of "De Harmonie" in Leeuwarden and move outside; - several shots of skaters in the Friesian landscape; - skaters arrive and klune near checkpoints in Hindeloopen; Workum; Harlingen; Franeker; Dokkum; - winners Sietze de Groot (men) and Antje Schaap (women) arrive at the finish in Leeuwarden.

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.
