New British Pathé websitePublished: 31 January 2012
That venerable newsreel company British Pathé has launched its new website at www.britishpathe.com with an emphasis in social networking. The entire archive can now be accessed via iPhone, iPad and other smart devices.
The new search facility aims to make some 90,000 items easier to search and find, with improved dates and tagging – there is also a new timeline search tool.
Users can also leave comments on videos, which can now be clustered into personalised collections.
Here is example of a story found on the site, looking ahead to the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden voyage – click on the image to view the story at www.britishpathe.com:
