  • Description

    M/S of three models from the British Nylon Fair at the Royal Albert Hall, London; two seated, one standing, all sipping drinks. The two at the left are wearing frilly pink nylon petticoats; the girl at the right wears a bright floral dress. A striking dark-haired girl with an amazing cylindrical beehive walks into shot, wearing a black sequinned bouffant petticoat with plain bodice; the standing girl hands her a drink. C/U as these two chat; then C/U of the girl on the left, tilt down to show she is wearing a full length underslip, with a very frilly layered skirt of pink, blue and white, and matching pink and white stole. C/U of her pink satin stiletto shoes with a matching frill across the vamp.

    C/U of the glamorous beehive girl (brilliant '60s make-up), tilt down to show her black underslip: tight bodice with spaghetti straps and v-neckline, very full layered skirt of "more than 50 yards of nylon lace threaded with silver". Extreme C/U of the lace.

    M/S of a seated girl lighting a cigarette; she wears a white underslip with spaghetti straps, tied at the waist with a ribbon, with a straight layered lace skirt and a long pink stole. C/U of white lace skirt. M/S of her as two other girls walk into shot and sit next to her. They both wear very full and frilly nylon dresses. These outfits look too fussy to be petticoats but apparently they are, complete with 'dressing capes'. On the left in pink with a high neck is Norma Madden; C/U tilt down of girl on the right in a blue dress with matching cape covered in 'Nodi d'Amore' ('knots of love' - white bows).

    C/Us of her feet in blue satin shoes with matching frill across the vamp then extreme C/Us of her stockings which have a built in sparkle! M/S of Jean Clark wearing blue pyjamas with a white ribbon down the front and two bows below the bust and the knees; tilt down to show the tight-fitting pants and ballerina slippers. M/S of a girl JC is talking to, wearing a truly horrible ruched and smocked pyjama suit with white frills attached. M/S of the two girls talking.

    Note: print used for transfer is quite scratched. Lovely film of '60s frilly slips and petticoats "becoming so fashionable it seems a shame to keep them hidden". Bri-Nylon / Bri-Lon show programme on file.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

The Duke of Edinburgh has many talents, but it is his unique way with words that often receives the most attention.

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.

Are you guilty of perpetuating a story regardless of its truth? Here are some classic urban myths which you may not know are false.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Life before health and safety laws; men worked at huge heights, balancing on girders and cranes all in order to help build the world's tallest skyscrapers.

The images taken from inside Buchenwald Concentration Camp after its Liberation show us what it was like; it tells us what happened and forces us to remember.
