  • Description

    No title. Unedited material. M/S of two peacocks walking in a woodland setting. Camera follows them as they move around. Various shots of the peacocks from different angles. In some of the shots they appear to be in a caged area.

    L/S of a small van parked in a country setting. It is possible that something is being loaded onto the back of the van - difficult to see. Name on the side of the van is Hindridge (?) Game Farm.

    Note: this material is not particularly well shot. No shots of peacocks with their tails unfurled.

The great politician and orator Winston Churchill left behind a sea of humourous quips and discerning quotes. We remember some of his finest epigrams and witty ripostes.

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

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