    i) "Motor Grand Prix - Boillot wins the French Motor Derby on a Peugeot car. Average speed 72 miles an hour." C/U of Boillot and his co driver sitting in their Peugeot.

Various shots of the King and Queen going about their duties. The Queen shakes hands with officials and the King rides alongside an officer, also on horseback.

    iii) "Kiel (Germany) The Emperor of Germany on board the vessel "Deutschland" has arrived in our town, in view of the launching of the iron-clad "Kaiser." Moving shot of a harbour from on board a boat. A launch (the "Deutschland"?) stands alongside the "Kaiser". Shot of the launch moving away from the larger ship. Shot of the Emperor walking with various dignitaries in front of a very large building in Kiel.

    iv) "St Leonards Outrage - Damage estimated at £10,000 was caused by suffragettes firing the residence of Mr Arthur Du Cros M.P." L/S of the home of Mr Du Cros. People mill around outside surveying the damage. M/S of man climbing a ladder to the roof of the building. He hits a piece of scaffolding with a hammer to loosen it from the building.

    v) "Trafalgar Square Riot - Some ugly rushes were made to secure the rescue of Miss Sylvia Pankhurst." High angle of parade of suffragettes making their way through a large crowd of people. The suffragettes carry banners and flags and are accompanied by policemen. Street level shot of mounted police trying to direct crowd. A woman runs to safety accompanied by a male friend. Policemen try to control the crowd, men run in the street. A young boy who looks rather upset is comforted by his father. Two policemen "escort" a man from the scene - perhaps he is under arrest. Sylvia Pankhurst is marched through the street by policemen, another suffragette follows, also escorted by police. High angle of half a dozen buses held up by the crowds in Trafalgar Square.

    vi) "The Derby - The Great Race from Start to Finish." "Arriving for the Race. The scene from the Hill." Camera pans to show the racetrack from quite a distance in the stands. Good shot of horse drawn carriages and a motorcycle and sidecar arriving for the race. "Arrival of the King." Crowds wave as the King's carriage arrives. "The Parade and Canter to the Post." Low angle shot from behind the heads of row of policemen of the horses and jockeys. High angle shot of the canter to the post (can't see much). "The Start" - horses line up and jockey for position. Start of the race seen. "At the Bushes." - horses seen running around a corner. "At Tattenham Corner." - horses gallop past. End of the race is seen with spectators close to the camera - good shot of man looking at his form book. M/S of jockeys in the paddock.

    "Pathe Gazette - The End." title.

    Note: there is no footage in the last story of Emily Davison throwing herself in front of the King's Horse. This may not have been filmed by Pathe, or it may have been censored or cut from the story at a later date. Under investigation!

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.
