British Pathé Collection of Historical Footage is now Available on YouTube

The videos feature news videos from Britain and also from many other countries. The collection includes the World’s Fair Parade of 1939, clips from World War I, the Miss World Pageant of 1969, as well as a number of reports and stories from across the globe from 1896 to 1976. You probably won’t find any of your ancestors in these videos, unless you are very lucky, but you will learn a lot about the world in which they lived and the events that shaped their lives.

One of the more interesting (?) videos was that of Arnold Schwarzenegger winning the Mr Universe competition in 1969, available at

The entire collection is available at
