The First Elfstedentocht Filmed Ever (1963)

In 1963 The Ice Race over 11 cities in the north part (Friesland) of The Netherlands was filmed for the first time ever.
The Elfstedentocht (eleven cities race) is a rare event on natural ice over 200 kilometer. It's rare because it is that cold very seldom. The ice has to be thick enough far all the scaters. When I am not mistaken 14.000 people ride the race. But millions of people come to watch or to skate just a little part of the race.
Here the way it was in 1963:
