News on Screen is a record of what British newsreels and cinemagazines were produced, not what physically exists.

The guide below indicates which archives in the UK hold the newsreel and cinemagazine series listed on News on Screen, but it is not a guarantee that a particular item is held there.

Please check with these archives for further details.
