  • Description

    Woodingdean near Brighton, East Sussex.

    M/S of Lillian and George Ickeringill walking along a country path; each one has three bloodhounds on leads. C/U of a sign on a gate reading 'Beware Bloodhounds'.

    M/S of Lillian going into a dog pen to feed three bloodhounds; she puts down two large bowls of meat for the dogs as commentator tells us "If you're thinking of getting one, let this be a warning - each dog eats 4 lbs of meat a day!". C/U of one of the dogs eating. M/S of a bloodhound looking out over a stable door.

    M/S of Lillian and George with one of the bloodhounds on a lead in a field. George runs off over the field, stopping to put his scarf down on the ground some distance away. Lillian and the dog follow; the dog stops to sniff the scarf and Lillian holds it before his nose. We hear that in this test, George has told Lillian the route he will take so that she can judge how well the dog is following his scent. The bloodhound then moves off, nose to the ground, trying to sniff George out, and breaks into a run, dragging poor Lillian behind him.

    M/S and C/U of the dog sniffing along the ground. M/S of George climbing over a wire fence and running off. M/S of the dog getting stuck under the same fence! Lillian has to push him through. More running bloodhound shots, then the dog finally corners George who is hiding behind a barn. Ah! The thrill of the chase! This footage was probably shot on the South Downs.

    I'm not a big dog fan but these have got quite nice faces.

    Note: Lillian is referred to on the commentary as Mrs Lillian Hylden; 'Hylden' was her maiden name. On file is a news article about Lillian and her bloodhound training. Cuts exist - see separate record.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
