Jon Human was selected for the Australian Schoolboys Cricket Team of 1966–67.

Between cricket matches, Jon explored the sights with his family camera. He captured candid moments featuring his travelling companions, as well as street scenes and notable locations like the Taj Mahal.

As with many momentous events, Jon still clearly recalls the trip, particularly the time when the bus had difficultly arriving at the ground due to all the people travelling around them.

Jon thought there must have been a festival or something important happening nearby. To his amazement, he discovered the crowds were all there to watch his match!

The NFSA holds four other home movies from the Human family, including footage from the 50th anniversary of the cricket tour.
