    Eskdale, Cumberland.

    Beautiful scenic view of a lake before a mountain as a man paddles past in a canoe; pan left to show a country house. M/S of a group of young men (aged between about 15 and 19) sitting outside with maps; an instructor is pointing to a gradient map of a mountain; commentator tells us they are at the Outward Bound school, where they will make a man and a mountaineer out of any young lad.

    L/S of the country house as the boys come running out and across the field; they are all dressed only in shorts or trunks, and look quite a pale and pasty lot! Various shots of them on their cross-country run, past the lake and then along a stream where the instructor lets loose a shute of water onto their heads as they go by - very character building, I'm sure.

    We then see some boys in canoes going down a river while the others watch; point of view shot from a canoe as we go over some minor rapids. A group of four boys walking through the hills with rucksacks stop to look at a map, then climb over a stone wall and cross a stream.

    M/S of a young lad climbing up a rope attached to a high tree branch, then sliding down another rope to land on the branch of another tree. Boys are seen walking across a rope 'bridge' strung between two trees. The group of boys watch while one lad hurtles down a rope on a pulley device over a hill.

    M/S of the exterior of a modern chapel with a glass front; the boys are seen going in as commentator tells us the school chapel was built by the boys and staff last year as a memorial to one of the instructors who was drowned on holiday. M/Ss inside the chapel as the boys file in and sit down; the glass front of the chapel looks out onto the lake and mountains; the curate starts the service.

    Note: on file is a booklet about the Outward Bound Mountain School plus a leaflet detailing the areas covered on the courses.

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.
