  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "America isn't the only place where they have funny contests - in Central Europe they hold a cigarette rolling championship!"

    M/S of a large room where contestants sit at tables rolling cigarettes. Three women are seen in the foreground, other men and women sit behind them. C/U of two women preparing their cigarette papers and their "mull". Panning shot of men rolling, licking their papers etc.

    C/U of man deep in concentration stuffing tobacco into a rolled piece of paper. He does something wrong and looks very exasperated (this looks staged). He wipes the sweat from his brow. He grabs a large handful of tobacco and tries to cram it all into a paper. Story incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 639.

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.
