Abstract For more than half a century, the film and newsreel company British Pathé documented almost every aspect of everyday life in Britain and around the world. Covering everything from major world events and exotic foreign travelogues to the pageantry of state occasions and gritty social issues, the company amassed a unique documentary record of 20th-century life. This film delves into British Pathé's amazing treasure trove of images, beginning with the work of the buccaneering cameramen behind Pathé's newsreels-men who witnessed pivotal moments in history and created many of the conventions of news programming that we still use today. It examines how the company reported on the First and Second World Wars, attempted to re-brand itself as a politically conscious news organization, and finally reverted to entertainment before being overtaken by live broadcast television.
