    Full title reads: "CHICAGO".

    Chicago, United States of America (USA).

    Film star and comedian Joe Brown wearing baseball kit, surrounded by boys, assists as baseball coach in Chicago's boys' baseball school. Coach standing next to Joe Brown and starts to speak (natural sound). He talks about necessity of this kind of school and expresses his confidence that some of the boys will become famous.

    Coach explains to a boy how to hold the bat. Boy batting. Several other boys batting. Joe Brown balling - he does it in manner of slow motion. All his movements are slowed down and over-exaggerated - he looks like a cartoon character. More shots of the boys playing. A boy catches the ball at the same time as the other boy touches the base. Joe Brown, who is presumably the umpire, shouts: "OUT!" Close up shot of his face as he shouts again.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

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