One of the oldest media companies in the world, British Pathe pioneered the use of the moving image for news and editorial purposes, developing the newsreel as a popular form of news distribution and entertainment. Between 1910 and 1970 British Pathe had produced over 90,000 individual news items comprising 3,500 hours of footage.
British Pathe newsreel footage is fully searchable and free for individual users to preview and enjoy; licenses for commercial use or redistribution must be negotiated with the company.
