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