    Los Angeles, United States of America, U.S.A.

    Title: "No Game for Weaklings! Girl amazons in Ladies' Lacrosse Championship show a much skill and speed as mere man!"

    M/S of a ladies' lacrosse team walking onto a pitch with their nets slung over their shoulders, they all wear shirts with 'P's on, a large crowd watches from spectator stands. M/S of another ladies' team running onto the pitch, they all wear skimpy black shorts. High angled shot of the lacrosse match in action - looks very vicious and fast paced! Male referees stand at each net.

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.
