  • Description

    Animated trailer item.

    A family sit down and enjoy a Sunday roast lunch. Father lights his pipe, and they have a cup of tea. The voiceover explains that much of what they are enjoying has to be imported. Despite this they are fully behind the export drive.

    The family push a ball marked with import and export. As it moves along it grows in size - because 'The more we import, the more we export". The family all nod as they sit around the table.

    Intertitle reads: "Fill The Ships and we shall Fill The Shops".

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

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.

Life before health and safety laws; men worked at huge heights, balancing on girders and cranes all in order to help build the world's tallest skyscrapers.
