Lloyd George with Dogs and Book 1929

2 mins England

The ‘Welsh Wizard' in good company: David Lloyd George, British prime minister 1916-22, walks through a garden [probably on his farm 'Bron-y-de', Churt, Surrey] accompanied by several dogs, and sits at his ease in a basket chair, reading a book. His leisure time is being recorded for a newsreel item and he declaims to the cameraman. He was keen on the Chow Chow breed of dog and had a particular favourite (probably seen here) known as ‘Y Chow Du' [The Black Chow].

National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales preserves and celebrates the sound and moving image heritage of Wales, making it accessible to a wide range of users for enjoyment and learning. Its film collection reflects every aspect of the nation’s social, cultural and working life across the 20th century, giving a fascinating insight into Welsh filmmaking, both amateur and professional
