  • Description

    Hampstead, London.

    L/S of a man and a woman standing next to a table with various model houses. High angle M/S of the table - some of the model houses, along with their surroundings, are seen. Man is showing the woman several elements of design on the little models.

    This is an exhibition of home designs created by Canadian architects using timber from British Columbia. These new designs are far from log cabins - claims voiceover - they are imaginative, attractive and have many practical advantages.

    High angle C/U shot of a design of council estate style building - a square building with a park in the middle and separate entrances from both, inside and outside. Several C/U shots of the individual houses which look nice but extremely spacious - makes it impossible to be built in the country like Britain which suffers from lack of space.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

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.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
