  • Description

    Titles read: "High School (Very!)".

    Ubergerdu (sp?), Austria.

    Various shots of children coming out of pretty houses in Ubergerdu (sp?), a snow-covered Tyrollean village. They put on skis and make their way through the valley and up a mountainside to their school. Commentator says this is Europe's highest school, over six thousand feet up.

    Inside the school we see a male teacher talking in German to some boys in a classroom - it sounds like a maths lesson. It is so cold you can see the breath of a little boy when he speaks. Then the children put on their skis and go back down the mountain.

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.
