    Titles read: "SKI FORM - BEGINNERS WATCH CHAMPS AT WORK".

    North Conway, New Hampshire, United States of America.

    Various shots of beginner skiers making their way up and down snowy hills. Some fall over on the way down. Olympian skiers Berger and Sigmund Ruud (sp? Rule? Ruge?) pose for the camera. Berger takes a ski jump (slow motion) then the brothers ski down a slope, criss-crossing over each other's path. They both do leaps over the camera.

    Other expert skiers join in and we see several shots of them skiing about and off into the distance.

The great politician and orator Winston Churchill left behind a sea of humourous quips and discerning quotes. We remember some of his finest epigrams and witty ripostes.

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!
