    Flash frame titles read: "THOSE FAMOUS RADIO & VARIETY STARS AL and BOB HARVEY".

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    M/S of Al Harvey sitting at the grand piano, playing a little tune. Bob Harvey walks into shot, wearing a hat and scarf and carrying some ice-skates. He asks Al to go ice-skating, but Al says he can't skate good enough. Bob cajoles him, and starts to sing a rather old-fashioned song about going skating called 'Whoops We Go Again' - it sounds a bit like 'And The Band Played On'.

    Al joins in, and we are invited to join in the chorus ("whoops we go again"!). At the end of the song, Al decides to go skating with Bob and they both pretend to skate off the stage while whistling.

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.
