  • "refuelled by the tanker 'Orangeleaf'" - that's RFA Orangeleaf (A80).

    "LS Royal Navy Buccaneers planes coming in to land." - that's immediately preceded by practice landings by several de Havilland Sea Vixen aircraft.

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.
