  • Description

    Titles read: "Caught By The Camera".

    Various locations of events.

    Near Sandwich in Kent we see a tiny railway station with the name of 'Poison Cross'. A toolbox attached to the station fence carries the words 'Poison Sandwich'. A nearby signpost reads 'To Ham / Sandwich'.

    Various shots of a huge spherical diving machine on a boat. The machine is designed to withstand several tons of pressure. The person inside moves mechanical arms on the outside to pick up a coin. The whole machine is then lowered into the water while a crowd of people watch. (Location is probably United States of America.)

    At a zoo in California, United States of America, we see a very tiny and extremely cute white lion cub. He sits in a cage with his mother, then poses with a little girl (she wears a kind of Shirley Temple outfit) and makes a tiny roaring sound. Very sweet!

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