  • Description

    From original issue sheet (no titles exist): "With this issue, the Pathe Super Gazette celebrates its first anniversary, and thanks to the support of the Owners and Patrons of this Cinema, it has been able to give, in each Edition, longer and more interesting pictures than hitherto possible of events of National and World Interest in any News-Film. The Pathe Super Gazette looks forward fortified by such support - to be able to do even better in the coming year. No expense will be spared - and every endeavour will be made to achieve further successes".

    Appears to be cuts / out takes from Pathe Gazette stories from 1925 which appear to be used in 1926 as a review item about the previous year. They are not edited in any particular order.

    L/S of battlefield - see FRENCH OFFENSIVE LAUNCHED in G 1195. C/U of pilot from AM ALL RIGHT in G 1200. M/S of Queen Mary and King George V walking along a red carpet from CANADA'S HOME IN ENGLAND in G 1203. L/S of a crowd on the far bank of a rapid river, some people use stepping stones to cross the water - unable to identify which 1925 issue this is from at present.

    M/S of an old fashioned train with people in period costume on it from RAILWAY CENTENARY in G 1204. Unidentified shots of an helicopter, original issue sheet refers to a 'rotor ship' story from February, 1925 - could be that? Some unidentified shots of a large aeroplane, includes some shots of air steward serving passengers on board. Unidentified shot of a ship being launched. Some unidentified shots of the wrecked American air ship, Shenandoah. Some shots of airship - R.33 - from story R.33 in G 1178.

    Unidentified shot of men milling about in a tree lined boulevard. Unidentified shots of men on a moored river boat. More shots from RAILWAY CENTENARY in G 1204. Shots of men unravelling hoses from WHILE THE BLAZE WAS AT ITS HEIGHT in G 1206.

    Rest of shots all unidentified: aerial shots of a collapsed building, M/S of a Native American man presenting a feather head-dress to a Caucasian man with a moustache, shots of troops marching down an avenue, shots of man inspecting hull of ship, shots of man in a diving suit that looks like a dustbin (trash can), shots of troops marching through the snow, shots of bombed out building, aerial shot of airborne plane with parachutists jumping out of it, some good slow motion shots of parachutists jumping off the wing of a plane.

    Note: please see separate records for reel 2 and 3.

On 18 September 2014 Scotland goes to the polls to vote on independence. To mark this and in celebration of all things Scottish, British Pathé has created Scotland: The Heritage Collection.
British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
Franz Reichelt
With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
