has entered into an historic partnership with YouTube
, which means its entire archive will be shareable for the first time.
The company, which documented news and events from 1910 to 1976, is also working with Mediakraft Networks to distribute the 85,000 videos in the archive.
British Pathé covered world-changing events in the 20th Century, including the World Wars, Emily Davison’s death at the 1913 Derby and the start of teenage pop culture.
The CEO of British Pathé, Roger Felber, said: “We have found the best conditions to ensure that our archive content will continue to act as a pioneer in moving images and retain its heritage for future generations.”
