  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    An odd looking man stands on a set. He tells a comic tale about a visit to Australia. He is holding a 'one-string fiddle'. He introduces a tune called 'Some birds have no bills at all, but a Belisha must have a beak-on'.

    He sits down to play his tune. After a few notes a woman in an evening dress walks on and sings a song with him. The song is quite serious and is entitled 'Serenade' by Schubert.

    N.B. This act is believed to be Hazell and Day - Rupert Hazell and Elsie Day. It appears to be a copy of PT 261.

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.
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.
