  • Description

    "Blithely tripping - lightly dancing - the joy of youth in fingers and toes."

    L/S of large groups of children dancing in formation in Hyde Park. Audience of mums and dads seen in the foreground. The children do reels - looks like Scottish Country Dancing. High angle shot of the kids dancing.

    "None of your serious ballroom styles for these youngsters - youth is too joyous for starched shirts and unwieldy dresses -" Low angle shot of girls dancing. M/S of the band. More shots of the girls dancing - they aren't in uniform but in short summer dresses.

    They look like primary school age or young secondary school pupils maybe. The dancing continues. C/U of young toddler watching the dancing. High angle panning shot of the girls dancing then bowing.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 478.

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.
