  • Description

    Pamukkale, Turkey.

    Various shots show a man swimming in a hot mineral spring pool that has formed over a Roman villa ruined by an earthquake eighteen centuries ago. A woman sits on a rock in the pool and the man swims over to her.

    Several shots show the Cotton Cliffs of Turkey; big white bulbous rocks that cascade down the mountainside, broken by pools of spring water. Commentator explains how the cliffs were formed by earthquakes carrying a hard water mineral spring to the top of the cliff.

    Note: the man seen walking in L/Ss of the Cotton Cliffs is Colour Pictorial Editor Douglas Warth. Cuts exist - see separate record.

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.
