    The British Movietone Database provides a searchable database of references to all Movietone news reels from 1929-1979. It also includes TV-AM News from 1983-1991. Coverage includes all major political, economic and social events during this period. This covers major wars, new technology, fashions and the British Royal Family. The TV-AM coverage incorporates material on the Gulf War, the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Also searchable on the site is the Henderson Collection of news films from 1895-1924. These offer references to the Boer war and the First World War. The database is searchable by subject keyword. All entries provide date references and descriptions of subject content. Information on how to access the film is offered on the site.
