A message from British Pathé


We’re absolutely thrilled to have gained so many new subscribers across our various social media channels over the last few weeks. Thank you all for supporting our upload of 85,000 films to YouTube – that’s more than most people can sift through in a lifetime!

Now that’s done, we’re dedicated to giving these videos a framework so that you can find exactly what you’re looking for. So keep your eyes peeled for our playlists and highlight videos – there’ll be a new one every week.

We’re sure there’s something for everyone in our archive and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Best wishes,
British Pathé

  1. Thanks for the fantastic uploads- BUT- what ever possessed you to hire that awful american presenter. He ruins everything. Were there really no british actors available BRITISH Pathé?

    1. Hi crafiesue – thanks for your comment. We’ve had quite a few people asking why our archive is being represented by an American. Our “British Pathé” name is a bit arbitrary. Our roots really lie in France and French cinema, and the company was always a global news organisation, with cameramen travelling throughout the world. Having Indy present these films is a way for us to emphasise that we are not just an archive full of British newsreels. Indeed, there are tens of thousands of American news stories in our collection. But we certainly take into consideration the thoughts of our viewers. All best, BP
