I continue to be amazed…

as to what can be found on the web, and especially on YouTube.

As reported on the School Library Journal, British Pathé turned its archive, spanning the 1890s through the early part of the 21st century, of more than 85,000 historical films (or 3500 hours) over to YouTube.

“British Pathé was once a dominant feature of the British cinema experience, renowned for first-class reporting and an informative yet uniquely entertaining style. It is now considered to be the finest newsreel archive in existence.”

Check out British Pathé and be prepared to spend some time enhancing your historical perspectives.
