  • Description

    Full title reads: "21st Anniversary 1910-1931 Pathe Gazette."
    Title reads: "Recorded by RCA Photophone System"
    Title reads: "Music specially arranged and conducted by M de Wolfe and his orchestra."

    Men sit reading newspapers in what is presumably the British Pathe editorial office. A man in background is fixing a tickertape machine.

    CU sign on door 'Editor'. The door opens and a man walks out.

    More shots of the men in the office. One of them puts on his hat and collects a brief case. He is told 'there are about three spools in there.'

    Wobbly camera moves as we go into the editor's office. He talks about the 21st Anniversary edition. He notes that some of the old film will appear speeded up but talks about the joys of using the newsreels to look back in history. As he says 'Let's go back to 1911'.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
