  • Description

    Titles read: 'The Wheel - New version. In this novel wheel you can ride for miles - yet only move two feet'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    M/S of a poor woman in a striped vest and pants (could be a swimsuit) spinning round and round on an exercise wheel. She is strapped in by the wrists and ankles and flops around like a rag doll - not very graceful! It looks like quite a painful experience! There is a dreadful scraping sound as the wheel goes round.

    Intertitle: 'One good turn deserves another - (This machine gets you slim while you whirl - not while you wait.)'.

    Then we see the woman turning round on the wheel, facing a man in vest and trunks. Then there are three of them on there - the woman and man plus another man, all spinning round together! Oo-er!

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.
