  • Description

    Keukenhof, Holland.

    M/S of the face of a girl. There is an elderly woman next to her. L/S of a woman in traditional outfit picking daffodils from the daffodil field. M/S of the woman picking daffodils. L/S of a woman in the same outfit, gardening. She is surrounded by different flowers, pond, trees, bushes... fantastic garden.

    L/S of the garden. Two women are seen walking through it. Great long panning shot of the garden with lots of people in. Flowers and plants look fantastic. A young boy is seen carrying a large bouquet through the park. "Three thousand million bulbs - enough to girdle the earth twice over, with still sufficient left over to make two double rows from Holland to New York..."

    Succession of shots showing the different views of the garden - beautiful flowers are seen everywhere. There are little wooden bridges, waterfalls, rocks, ponds and tiny paths - all arranged to perfection. M/S of the duck family, mother and the babies, swimming across the pond. L/S shot of the ducklings swimming.

    Several great C/U shots of the flowers and flower fields (tulips, narcissuses, daffodils, hyacinths). Although beautiful, this garden does not look as much fun - children and animals are probably not welcome.

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!
