"The necessity of devices for directional orientation distinguishes humans from many animals born with an instictive sense of direction. The earth's magnetic field and its role in the use of compasses is explained and demonstrated. Sequences on the manufacture and testing of compasses are also featured. Roy Bonisteel is the on-camera host and narrator."
