New television and film archive catalogue
Thanks to the Guild of One Name Studies for the heads up on this.
A new federated film and television catalogue has been launched at http://beta.bufvc.ac.uk/, which collates the search engines of nine different collections, including the Imperial War Museum, and stretching back to 1896, with some 13 million records. The project is a collaboration between the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) and Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL).
I've already found a useful film listed from 1918 showing the Ruhleben POW camp in Germany - need to pop along to the IWM now to have a look!
