  • Description

    River Frome, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire.

    L/S of an old looking country house with a pond in front of it. L/S of two men (David Tuft and his colleague) approaching the pond. They start feeding fish. C/U shot of a water with the fish jumping out.

    "An ideal setting for Britain's most unusual industry ... the trout farm from which trout eggs are exported all over the world." Eggs from Rainbow, Brown and Loch Leven trout are produced at this farm. Fish are kept in separate lakes and transported to customers in specially designed tanks supplied with oxygen - sometimes the tank travels for up to 24 hours to reach its destination.

    M/S of two men taking the fish out of the water and sorting them by size. Fish of the same age can be different in size and sorting is necessary to give the smaller fish better chance to survive. M/S of David Tuft sorting the fish. C/U shot of hands measuring the size of a small fish. C/U shot of the hands (a fish in each hand) demonstrating difference in size.

    M/S of a man returning the fish into pond. L/S of two men holding a net at the opposite sides of the pond. The men are dragging the net through the water to form a circle. M/S of the two men pulling the net out. C/U shot of the fish in the net. L/S of separate lakes with one of the workers pushing a barrow across pathway between them.

    Before the fish have been despatched to different parts of the country they are kept in "starving tanks" for several days to ensure that they arrive at their destination in good condition. M/S of Mr. F. W. Stevens, the resident director, supplying the transport tank with oxygen and loading the fish in the tank. L/S of the farm showing the lakes divided by the footpaths.

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.

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

The Duke of Edinburgh has many talents, but it is his unique way with words that often receives the most attention.

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.

Are you guilty of perpetuating a story regardless of its truth? Here are some classic urban myths which you may not know are false.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
WW1
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.

The images taken from inside Buchenwald Concentration Camp after its Liberation show us what it was like; it tells us what happened and forces us to remember.
