  • Description

    On across the Big Gerstle River and passed a complex of rivers and islands where the Delta River merge with the Tanana River. The drivers look at a statue erected to Felix Pedro who discovered gold in the Fairbanks area in 1902. By the side of a creek a man pans for gold. A large modern mechanised dredger slowly propels itself forward as it extracts gold.

    At the end of the journey the cars drive down the busy main street of Fairbanks. The Morris Minors are seen approaching the long dirt highway. A montage of lorries raising up dust as they drive the highway, and a big plug for Nuffield cars.

    The End.

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.

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