Abstract For more than half a century, film and newsreel company British Pathé documented almost every aspect of British life, but it also captivated audiences with enthralling stories from overseas. In the age before mass tourism made international travel affordable and accessible, their travelogues and anthropological documentaries offered British cinemagoers a rare opportunity to glimpse faraway worlds. For decades, Pathé covered royal tours to every corner of the British Empire, but by the 1950s, when the first package holidays were sold, the company also recorded the experiences of the first generations of Britons who were able to indulge in leisure travel around the globe. This film examines the unique footage captured by the company's cameras across five continents during Pathé's seven decades of international film-making.
