    Reading, Berkshire.

    C/U shot of hands pouring a chocolate filling into an icing bag. A man fills the bag and moves it away. M/S of another man decorating cake. High angle C/U shot of the cake as the man decorates it. Decorations look amazing - very precise and very fragile. The artist's name is Mr Jack Bryant and he is decorating cakes since 1913 in the same cake and biscuit factory in Reading where his father was doing it for 60 years.

    High angle C/U shot of the cake as Mr Bryant draws a kangaroo in almost no time - extraordinary skill. M/S of Mr Bryant climbing onto scaffolding?! He has to lie down on it in order to decorate a central motif on a large white cake. C/U shot of a little flowery detail on the cake. M/S of Mr Bryant decorating the cake in lying position. C/U shot of Mr Bryant's face as he works.

    L/S of the room enables the spectators to see how large the cake is - it is nearly size of a bed. Several shots of Mr Bryant working. High angle M/S of the cake. Mr Bryant is writing "60th Anniversary" on the cake. As Mr Bryant moves away, audience sees the cake with all its decorations and the sign - great!

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.
