Many SCW newsreels now online

November 12, 2010

For those interested in archival footage of the Spanish Civil War: newsreel footage is increasingly made available not only on DVD but also as streaming video online, for instance at Getty Images, the Internet Archive or Google Video. A particularly rich source is the site of British Pathé. See for instance this seven-minute film on the bombing of Madrid, or this strangely upbeat and France-friendly clip on the Catalonian army and refugees crossing the French border.
