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, 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!
