  • Description

    "Eve has joined the uplift movement - in the air."

    M/S of two women standing on the top wing of a biplane as it taxis along. "Only yesterday Adam was the stunt specialist in mid-air, but Eve plays the 'plane-changing game equally as well today." Good air to air shots of woman jumping from the wing of one plane to another whilst they are in flight - good stunt!

    "Just like changing your cars, on land. (But one slip here, would be your final notice!)" Shot of the stunt being performed again. "Now - any lady?" M/S of the plane coming into land with two women standing on the wings.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 524.

    Safety print exists.

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.
