British Pathé Posts Archives to YouTube

British Pathé, the famed newsreel company, has made what it describes as 85,000 historical films available online at YouTube.

This is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in history (at least, history filtered through British Imperial lenses), and for a blog like mine. A few quite random Middle East selections from the searchable site are blow (the first one, from 1922, is silent of course.)
