    North Wales.

    Item title reads: "To Resign or Not to Resign. We can only say that the Premier had to resign himself to a very small catch."

    Prime Minister David Lloyd George is seen fishing. He walks down a hillside to a babbling brook and casts off. Scenic shot of Lloyd George fishing beside a bridge. M/S of Lloyd George fishing - a woman sits beside him, possibly his wife.

    Closer "over the shoulder" shot of L.G. fishing then L/S of him posing beside the river.

    Note: there is a duplicate copy of this story entitled 'To Resign or Not' on *PM0440* - EB 2001.

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.

On 18 September 2014 Scotland goes to the polls to vote on independence. To mark this and in celebration of all things Scottish, British Pathé has created Scotland: The Heritage Collection.
