  • Description

    Full title reads: "Paris. 'He yielded nothing to America'. All France acclaims M. Laval as national hero, on return from conference with President Hoover."

    Paris, France.

    French Prime Minister Pierre Laval walks with his party of diplomats down the gangplank from a ship. They pose for the camera at the end of the walkway.

    Various shots of Laval receiving warm welcome. Crowds squash around him as he walks, with a bunch of flowers, along the platform at a railway station.

    A car carries the PM away from the station.

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.

On 18 September 2014 Scotland goes to the polls to vote on independence. To mark this and in celebration of all things Scottish, British Pathé has created Scotland: The Heritage Collection.
