This may not be as exciting as other freebies but may come in useful for some people.
The Britsh Pathe website is, for this year only, not charging for downloads. So if you are studying or just interested in certain aspects of the past and would like to know more ie the Titanic, football world cup, WW2, the Beatles or even Corsets this can be quite an interesting site.

Please let me know if I have posted this on the wrong site, as I am still new at this.

    I think this is for previews only? Or do you get the whole video for free?
    Smile and be happy, things can usually get worse!

    When you select the film which you would like to see it comes up with various video clips as well as the story. But, when you click on "Download Video" a message should pop up saying that it has been added to your basket. If you view your basket you can either carry on "shopping" or "Proceed". After you have filled in all the necessary bits and pieces the complete download(s) should start direct to your computer.

    I think this answers your question, if not please let me know. Most of the video clips are only a couple of minutes long, if that tho.

    WICKED!!!

    This is brilliant for creating Geneology CD's to pass around the family next Christmas.

    Also, as I do scrapbooking and in the process of making Family History albums some of the facts for the relevant era's will be just perfect!

    Thank you very much for posting this - very much appreciated. ;D ;D ;D

    My pleasure.
    I compiled a CD of events that happened on my Dads birth date for his birthday which he was most impressed with. Now all of his friends want one as well! :) 8) :)
