    Enfield, Middlesex.

    Various shots of two young men living in a sealed plastic tent for 24 hours to test out a new life support system. The tent is inside a factory or warehouse. One of them lies on a bed, the other is Peter Newman, who looks at oxygen dials on the support system box.

    Outside the tent a woman looks at a meter that is measuring the heartbeats of the men and makes notes. C/U of the life support box inside the tent. One of the men makes tea with an electric element in a cup. The woman outside starts up a metronome. Peter Newman does exercises in the tent.

    Finally the tent is opened and the pair come out. Photographers take pictures as the men do some knee bends and arm stretches.

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.
