History
British Screen Tatler was conceived as a sister cinemagazine to the newsreel, British Screen News. It was made by British Screen Pictures and distributed every Monday for two years. The series’ name, reminiscent as it is of the print magazine, The Tatler, suggests that British Screen Pictures had aspirational aims in mind for its content. This seems to have been borne out in the subjects covered by the reel, such as Home Hints. The series also featured regular episodes of the cartoon, ‘The Adventures of Little Nibs.'
Provenance
