British Pathé newsreals online

British Pathé was a producer of newsreels, cinemagazines, and documentaries from 1910 until 1970 in the United Kingdom. Over 90,000 clips are now available online from the Pathé website. So this isn’t a strictly off-topic post. If you enter “computer” as a search term you’ll see a collection of clips dating back as far as 1949 (an electronic machine that plays noughts and crosses). If you have an interest in history I’m sure you’ll find this site fascinating – try using your home town as a search term, you may be surprised by the breadth of Pathé’s coverage.
