    Title: "COUNTRYSIDE BEAUTIES RESTORED by removal of advertising signs".

    M/S of a misty field, ponies wander about in front of a rickety old barn. Pan to roadside advertisements on posts stuck into the edge of the field, three men use pick axes and shovels to remove the unsightly signs, as they finish another man watching (the farmer?) tips his hat in gratitude. The sign nearest the camera is promoting 'Shell'.

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.
