We’ve been promoting our Space Archive a great deal recently as part of our “Alternative Pathé” drive. So it seemed appropriate to share this Christmas message from the British Pathé staff of 1968: “The world seen from space is a small place. Even now we strive for the stars, but our Christmas wish is for peace and happiness to conquer our planet. We wish you all that is good, a very happy Christmas.”
The brief clip is called “Christmas Greetings From Space” and can be viewed here.
But as well as this Christmas message, we also have a Christmas gift for you – this terrific clip from our archives:
All of us at British Pathé wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
