  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    An animated trailer film encourages people to buy imports to encourage exports.

    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".

    Possibly connected with 47/6 - MD.

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.
