From the British Pathé YouTube channel:
Since the invention of the moving image in the 1890’s, British Pathé began recording every aspect of global culture and news, for the cinema. With their unique combination of information and entertainment, British Pathé’s documentaries, newsreels, serials and films changed the way the world saw itself forever.
These videos are amazing, and it’s easy to get caught up watching one after another. Disasters, inventions, daredevils, Queen Victoria’s funeral, the Hindenburg, as well as cute (and sometimes weird) animal videos.
Check ’em out! There are 85,000 clips from which to choose!
You thought I’d go for the obvious 4/20 or Easter Bunny post, didn’t you? ;)
