People go to the cinema for a fun afternoon of watching actors die in fiery explosions. But in reality - in history - in British Pathé archive footage, the explosions are real and they are deadly. We hope to explore historical bombings and our attitude to these weapons over the course of our second themed month.
THE THINGS THAT GO BOOM! - THE MONTH OF BOMBS ON BRITISH PATHÉ (JULY 2015): Teaser.
This teaser gives a flavour of what is to come. There'll be new uploads and playlists every Thursday at 5pm UK time. There’ll also be special videos on the second and third Tuesday of the month. Let us know what you think as we really appreciate your feedback!

BRITISH PATHÉ'S STORY
Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news. British Pathé was at the forefront of cinematic journalism, blending information with entertainment to popular effect. Over the course of a century, it documented everything from major armed conflicts and seismic political crises to the curious hobbies and eccentric lives of ordinary people. If it happened, British Pathé filmed it.
Now considered to be the finest newsreel archive in the world, British Pathé is a treasure trove of 85,000 films unrivalled in their historical and cultural significance.
