  • Description

    Full title reads: "Leicestershire. 'Old English' Country people - from far and wide - come to see 'the Melton Hunt' over miles of typical hunting country."

    Leicestershire.

    Horses ridden away at speed. Crowds of people watch the racing. (It looks more like point to point racing than a hunt).

    Horses take jump. More jumps and more shots of the horses and their jockeys.

    Horses take water jump, one of the riders falls off. Good shots of the crowds lining the course. More shots of the race out around the course. Two horses cross the finishing line.

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.
