  • Description

    London.

    Pauline Brooks is visiting a scrap yard in London. She is wearing a white fur fabric coat and has great bouffant short 1960's hair and wears glasses. The camera pans over the tangled heaps of metal. Pauline picks out a piece with shapes cut out, and a black guy wearing a white safety helmet cuts it for her.

    In her workshop she and husband, John, admire the strange shapes of her scrap yard finds and he uses welding equipment to fix a piece onto a base. Pauline winces as she turns away from the flare, holding the metal in place as he, wearing a face shield, welds the base.

    In the exhibition area, Sheldon Williams looks at some of of her works. She shows him some polished copper rings. There is a sequence of shots showing her weird works, all beautifully lit with interesting colours to accentuate the stark shapes of the metal. One looks like a backbone.

    Cuts exist - see other record.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

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.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

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.
