The newsreel company Pathe produced cinema news for about 50 years.

Their archive is now available to browse for free.

Go to and enter "magic" or "magician" or whatever you like into the search engine. Up will come loads of old clips to download featuring people like Billy McComb, Robert Harbin, Alan Alan and others.

Have fun!

PS. Apparently today (Nov 19) their website has jammed due to heavy traffic, so you may have difficulty downloading stuff.

This is cool! Smile But watch out when you "re-enter" your information (in fact it is automatically re-entered), the field "subscribe to newsletter" is checked again! Smile

Who cares about the magic, they have Beatles footage!
