  • Description

    Full title reads: "Wimbledon. 'At the Mecca of Tennis' - America retains the Wightman Cup by four events to three."

    Wimbledon, London.

    Two women tennis players walk out onto court at Wimbledon. As this is the Wightman Trophy one is presumably English and the other from the United States of America. The two players pose by the net.

    Pan across the Wimbledon crowd to show the players (I think this is centre court). Shots of the women playing their singles match. They come to the net to shake hands.

    Sound Track Missing

    NB. As there is no sound track identification of the players involved is difficult - any information please?

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.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.

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

The Duke of Edinburgh has many talents, but it is his unique way with words that often receives the most attention.

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.

Are you guilty of perpetuating a story regardless of its truth? Here are some classic urban myths which you may not know are false.

Life before health and safety laws; men worked at huge heights, balancing on girders and cranes all in order to help build the world's tallest skyscrapers.

The images taken from inside Buchenwald Concentration Camp after its Liberation show us what it was like; it tells us what happened and forces us to remember.
