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.

The Duke of Edinburgh has many talents, but it is his unique way with words that often receives the most attention. 
Philip
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.

Are you guilty of perpetuating a story regardless of its truth? Here are some classic urban myths which you may not know are false.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
