    Full title reads: "France. Happy hearts and tingling cheeks in the brilliant sunshine and exhilarating mountain air makes one envy winter holidaymakers at Chamonix!"

    Chamonix, France.

    Nice shots of men riding toboggans or sledges down a snow covered hill side. They appear to be in some kind of organised race rather than just having fun. POV shot from front of toboggan as it speeds downhill. More LS of mountains around Chamonix and more shots of tobogganists.

    Shots of people playing curling. Nice shots of this game being played outdoors.

    (Natural Sound Track Only - No Commentary)

    This material is from 1930s Extras Reel 2 - keep separately from original newsreels.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
