  • Description

    No title. Two women tinkle with their motorcycles M/S and C/U. The girls sit astride their motorbikes. C/U of one of the women who is wearing a leather coat and hat. C/U of the other girl, they both smile broadly. They have a couple of male companions.

    Man brings down a flag and the girls set off on their bikes. They move away from the camera over a field and up a steep hill. Various shots of the girls riding cross country. Men stand at the top of the hill to watch the race. A man waves a flag on a stick when one reaches the top.

    "Reneé reached the top in just three minutes - another triumph for Eve!" She shakes hands with a judge. She laughs and looks at the camera.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 560.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

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!
