  • Description

    Tsavo, Kenya National Park, Africa.

    Various shots at Nairobi Airport show a crowd of passengers getting onto a BUA (British United Airlines) aeroplane; L/S of the plane taking off. On board we see the passengers looking at souvenirs of their trip to Kenya - drums, brochures, carvings and an ostrich egg - while they are served drinks by a stewardess.

    Cut to several shots of animals and birds in the Tsavo National Park: elephants (one is seen trumpeting), wildebeest, pelicans, rhinoceroses (rhinos). Some tourists with their heads sticking out of a camper van drive through the entrance of the Park; inside we see the orderly campsite; a white man washes from a bowl outside one of the green tents. Several shots of exotic flowers and vegetation; a beautiful waterfall.

    The tourists stand outside the camper van and look through binoculars at flamingos on a lake and giraffes. More people look at lions from a Land Rover. At an area for 'Game Orphans' we see rhinos, buffalo and ostriches wandering around together. A white hunter and African attendants examine the tusks of a dead elephant; elsewhere, tusks are weighed and hundreds of elephant skulls are piled up. We see Peter Jenkins, assistant warden of the Park, measuring a skull while a woman takes notes for research.

    Several shots show a small aeroplane taking off; Peter Jenkins watches over the animals from the driver's seat. Various shots in a village show souvenirs being crafted: men carve wooden animals, water bottles hang from a pole, a girl displays necklaces / neck rings. Another man puts hundreds of fish on a wire table to dry in the sun. Men are seen in a small fishing boat; a truck is pulled across the river on a basic ferry.

    Various shots of westerners relaxing by the beach and on small boats. At a game lodge, holidaymakers sit on a veranda and watch elephants, zebras, antelope and lions through binoculars. Several shots of lions and lionesses lying in the grass, some with legs and front paws stretched apart!

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.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
