British Pathe is the world’s first digital news archive. It enables you to preview and download film clips from the British Pathe Film Archive covering news, sport, social history and entertainment from 1896 to 1970. Downloading the basic clips is free of charge, but the site does charge for higher resolution versions of the clips.
For the films to play, your PC should have a recent version of Windows Media Player; this will be automatically available on networked University PCs.
On Campus: From Library Search search for British Pathe. Select the top DATABASE result and then click Link to Resource.
Off Campus: To access British Pathe off campus (outside the University) go to: www.britishpathe.com. No password is required.
