British Pathé is a treasure trove of 85,000 films unrivaled in their historical and cultural significance. Spanning the years from 1896 to 1976, the collection includes footage from around the globe of major events, famous faces, fashion trends, travel, science and culture. It is an invaluable resource for broadcasters, documentary producers, and archive researchers worldwide.
“We’re excited to partner with Footage.net in order to provide a new level of service for our customers,” said Alastair White, general manager of British Pathé. “Footage.net is a terrific tool for painlessly searching multiple archives worldwide all at the same time. We wanted to be a part of that project and make it possible for researchers to search that way if they wish to do so. We also hope that new customers who would otherwise have been unaware of British Pathé will discover us there.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome British Pathé to the Footage.net community,” said David Seevers. “They’ve done an outstanding job of restoring and digitizing this historically invaluable collection and making it available online across a range of platforms. We’re very excited about helping them bring their collection to our global user base.”
Footage.net works with a wide variety of stock footage companies to enhance their visibility across the global production community. British Pathé data and thumbnail images will be available for search through Footage.net alongside motion content from other leading footage companies.
