British Council Film

British Council Film | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"The British Council Film Collection is an archive of over 120 short documentary films made by the British Council during the 1940s designed to show the world how Britain lived, worked and played. Preserved by the BFI National Film Archive and digitised by means of a generous donation by Google, the films are now yours to view, to download and to play with for the first time."

theo kuechel's insight:

This is a,valuable and interesting collection of short  'soft propaganda'   films originating during a very specific period in Britain's history. The  films will not only be be of great interest to historians but also to educators  from other fields of study. The content throws a unique light on the daily life and concerns of the population.


The Creative Commons BY NC SA, licence means you can edit, remix and  share these films for any educational use.

TV NEWS : Internet Archive extends it collection to TV News

TV NEWS : Internet Archive extends it collection to  TV News | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

The Internet Archive added TV News to its collection yesterday, (Tues.18th Sept).  The Archive has captured captured all (US) news from 20 channels. This is the start of something big and and I hope they will be adding news broadcasts from other countries soon, it is also good to see BBC Worldwide included in the aggregated content.


There is a lot here and to make best use, you would probably need to have a question, topic  or search strategy prepared. You can search by keyword, time, program and TV network. There is also a useful word cloud that show recent searches. According Brewster Khale, founder of the internet Archive, this is just the beginning. The copyright debate that is likely to ensue should also prove interesting.

1923 animated film about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity

1923 animated film about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

I don't normally link to individual videos on Video for Learning but delighted to make an exception here.


"Einstein's Theory of Relativity” is a silent animated film made in 1923 that tried to explain Einstein’s work to the general public"

Made by Max Fleischer, (his famous works include Popeye and Betty Boop amongst others),  this is a predecessor of educational video infographics.  I think it helps put work from the likes of  RSA and Commoncraft in  a context.


An interesting point raised in one of the comments is:  

"The model of the two revolvers attached to the wooden wagon wheel are so far removed from our modern society"

.. but arguably still help convey the concept, as also mentioned  in another comment:


"In 1979, I once tried to explain orbital mechanics to my step-father, who was a Mississippi share-cropper born in 1933, turned career US Postman. I was 10 years old and understood it completely, but could not get it through his head that there was no up and down in space because it was all relative. Still, using that example to demonstrate relativity is quite simplistic."

More on the film here (wikipedia).

I would suggest; if you are remixing video - this would be an excellent source from which to draw content. It also features a very early remix - Charles A. Ridley's - Nazi Style Lambeth Walk.

Animation Pioneer Max Fleischer Illustrates 1944-1945 News Wires | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

If the stop-motion timelapse editing and Fleicher’s illustration style look familiar, they should be — they presage the excellent and ever-popular RSA animations by over half a century and no doubt inspired everyone’s favorite intellectual sketchnote-storytelling.

 

The film is now in the public domain and available as a free, legal, remixable download courtesy of the Internet Archive.

Understanding 9/11: A Television News Archive | Internet Archive Blogs | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"Television is our preeminent medium of information, entertainment and persuasion, but until now it has not been a medium of record. Scholars face great challenges in identifying, locating and adequately citing television news broadcasts in their research."

 

"This archive attempts to address this gap by making TV news coverage of this critical week in September 2001 available to those studying these events and their treatment in the media.Starting in late 2000, we began collecting Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Iraqi, French, Mexican, British, American, and other stations… 20 channels of TV in DVD quality."
