  • This footage is of Lord Derby's horses.
    Racehorses in training are filmed at Stanley House Stables in Newmarket.
    Yearlings, mares & the stallion Hyperion are filmed at Woodlands Stud also in Newmarket.
    The two paintings are also of Hyperion. The first one is of him in training & is by Walter Earl, the second of him as a stallion is by Sir Alfred Munnings.
    Hyperion won the derby in 1933 & was one of the most influential sires of the 20th century.
    He looks a very old horse in the film so I would date this to the mid to late 1950s. He died in 1960.

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.
