A few days ago (quote, links by me) …
Newsreel archive British Pathé has uploaded its entire collection of 85,000 historic films, in high resolution, to its YouTube channel. This unprecedented release of vintage news reports and cinemagazines is part of a drive to make the archive more accessible to viewers all over the world.
The whole press release is here.
I hope, that contrary to a lot of YouTube content, those will not have copyright limitations. And I hope you will enjoy the old newsreels.
