  • Description

    London.

    A lovely dark haired girl sits for an artist - its her father, Lionel Burleigh, who is so prolific he's been called a high speed artist. C/U of him working with brush and paint. He paints his wife and he paints a scene on a wall (footage is speeded up to make him look even faster - SL). He not only paints - he has seven sons and two daughters! We see his paintings on the wall. Then Lionel is seen in the street going into the galleries. Inside, there is an exhibition of his one man show on display. People admire the paintings.

    Note : Didn't see anyone buy one - and all those children to feed ! See also CP 586 Cuts.

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.
