    Cataloguers note: The importance of this footage centres on the fact that this was the first step of the longest war in American history slowly winding down. It was not until finally on April 30th, 1975 that North Vietnamese forces took Saigon and the already waning American war effort capitulated completely. These initial talks in Paris symbolised the first step in ending the conflict.

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.
