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.
“Our hope is that everyone, everywhere who has a computer will see these films and enjoy them,” says Alastair White, General Manager of British Pathé. “This archive is a treasure trove unrivalled in historical and cultural significance that should never be forgotten. Uploading the films to YouTube seemed like the best way to make sure of that.”
The above is fantastic news for sites like ours and the Woking Muslim Mission website as we can finally watch and share, at no cost, stunning videos from when the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement ran the Woking Mosque in the UK.
We have been working very hard to improve the quality of the videos that we upload, so that they are interactive to watch and also that they are preserved for future generations to be able to watch and reference when they embark on their own journeys to learn about Islam.
