Welcome to the VE Blog


Before television, people went to movie theatres to watch the news. British Pathé was at the forefront of cinematic journalism, blending information with entertainment to popular effect. Over the course of a century, it documented everything from major armed conflicts and seismic political crises to the curious hobbies and eccentric lives of ordinary people. If it happened, British Pathé filmed it. Now considered to be the finest newsreel archive in the world, British Pathé is a treasure trove of 85,000 films un-rivalled in their historical and cultural significance.

You may also enjoy some of these fantastic films from British Pathé which have been released for all to see.  You could quite happily spend hours browsing through their library!  Here are some of our favourites.
