  • Description

    Circle Art Gallery, London.

    Sculptor Bernard Lardera is seen placing one of his metal sculptures on a pedestal; a woman is seen looking at other work by the artist at an exhibition at the gallery. In an outside exhibition area, Bernard pokes his head through part of another sculpture; the objects all seem to have several metal pieces that slot together with metal teeth.

    Various shots as a dolly bird fits several pieces of metal sculpture together; the pieces are interchangeable and Bernard believes people who play with these 'adult toys' can become partners with him to bring a new sculpture into being. Bernard appears and helps the girl to slot the final pieces in place.

    Good footage of modern art.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
