    "And now, in this first issue of a new All-British series of Cartoons..." Animation featuring the fabulous Jerry the Troublesome Tyke - a cartoon dog. A U.I.C. production. A pen magically writes the words: "His mother was a "Nib" and his father was a "Big Pot." - we see drawings of a pen and a bottle of ink. The ink pot takes off his lid and the pen jumps in. The pen jumps out again and begins drawing Jerry. The pen and ink do a little dance. Jerry is having a little sleep. A hand comes into shot and taps him on the shoulder. He wakes up and looks around- he is so cute! A newspaper cutting is shown to Jerry.

    It reads: "A cartoon dog wanted. Must be able to ride a horse. Apply PATHE studio." Jerry takes it and laughs. Then looks worried and shakes his head. He says: "But I can't ride a horse." Sid says "Well you must learn." Jerry grumbles but Sid puts a piece of paper on top of him. Jerry breaks through the paper saying "Hi! What's the Big Idea?" Sid draws a horse. Jerry points at the horse and laughs. He then punches it in the nose (for no apparent reason!) The horse collapses and stars appear. The horse stands up. A question mark appears between them and then steam comes out of the horse's nose - it looks angry. Jerry shakes. The horse bares its teeth at Jerry who decides to try and get on the horse's back. He climbs on.

    Jerry is seen falling off a horse. The horse laughs at Jerry. Jerry climbs on its back. The horse sags in the middle. Jerry punches the horse and it starts to run. Cartoon Jerry and horse are superimposed over live action street. They run past cars and shops.

    They arrive outside the Pathe office. There are signs in the window for "Pathe Super Gazette" and "Eve's Film Review". The horse stops suddenly and Jerry goes flying over its head and through one of the windows. Inside the Pathe office a man stands up behind a large desk. He and Jerry have a conversation which ends with the man saying: "If you rode that you can ride anything! You're engaged!!"

    Jerry wiggles his feet and his ears. Jerry holds up a piece of paper which reads: "Contract between Pathe Ltd and Mr Jerry. Salary 500 bones weekly." "But, how Jerry "sticks it" will be shown in future "Pictorials."

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
