  • Description

    High angle L/S of a row of cars waiting to be sold; C/U of the price on a car windscreen; '£775 / Low Mileage, Heater, Exceptional Condition, H.P. Terms, Part Exchanges'; another is priced at £155. M/S of people looking at small planes to buy; commentator talks of this being the age of H.P. (hire purchase).

    C/U of a sign saying 'Horses on H.P. Terms! Any horse taken in part exchange'. Two young girls in riding gear and a man (presumably their father) are shown various horses at these stables in Wickford, Essex; one of the girls shakes her head as a dark horse's teeth are examined.

    A groom climbs onto a horse and rides it around the paddock as the customers and dealer William Foyle watch. The horse takes some jumps and the older girl nods her approval; she then has a go on the horse.

    William Foyle and the girls' father walk over to a desk; C/U of William filling out a Hire Purchase Proposal Form. He folds the form up and gives it to the father.

    M/S of the girl still riding around the paddock.

    Note: On file is a news cutting from the Daily Mirror about William Foyle's horses on H.P. sales. Cameraman's notes on file list names as Susan Revering (sp?) is older girl buying a horse; Jennifer Brookes is the younger girl, and Malcolm Cumberline (sp? Chamberlain?) is the groom.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.
