  • Description

    Titles read: "Sportshots No. 6 - Popular sports and sportsmen under the cine-camera lens. Ted Phelps, World's Sculling Champion. With explanatory commentary by Charles Eade - Sports Editor, Sunday Express."

    Putney, London.

    M/S of the River Thames at Putney; Ted Phelps rows into view in a small boat and waves at the camera. He starts to row over towards us. Charles Eade meets him at the riverside and asks how he is, then asks Ted to "show us how it's done".

    Various shots of Ted rowing, some in slow motion, as Charles gives us more details about Ted and sculling. Ted's brother, Eric, is seen rowing alongside him. Charles mentions that the problem with sculling is that there is no 'gate money' (from spectators); he says Ted would probably make more money as an amateur in other sports.

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.
