  • Description

    Titles read: "From A drop of water!"

    United States of America.

    A man looks at drops of water under a microscope. We see a magnified view of wiggling creatures that live in the water.

    Another man works with glass to create large, detailed models of the creatures. The first is of the protozoa - it has numerous bulbous pieces fitted together to form a sort of snowflake shape. More weird and wonderful creatures that have been recreated in glass - looks like painstakingly detailed work.

    Visuals cut out a few seconds before the end of the item. Soundtrack continues to end.

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.
