  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Various shots of a small twin-rudder single-engine experimental aircraft with a pusher propellor being rolled out onto a runway, taking off and in flight. Location of events unknown - could be Finland?

    Several shots of canaries in rows of cages at a Continental exhibition hall. C/Us of canaries as we hear them 'singing along' to 'The Monastery Garden'. A cameraman lifts off the front of a canary cage and films the birds with a motion picture camera. Good shots of canaries; one of them looks like he is wearing a toupee!

    In South Africa, we see white farmers playing the traditional game of 'Ukskai' where clubs are thrown towards a peg in the ground to try to knock it over.

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.

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

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.
