British Pathé

The world's leading multimedia resource with a history stretching back over a century. The finest and most comprehensive archive of fabulous newsreels, video, archive, film, footage and stills.

British Pathé

british_pathe_ed_logoAs an emPSN school, one of the many benefits is the free access to the British Pathé archive. This is via an education portal and when connecting through an emPSN machine that is already on network, this connection is automatic.

Within British Pathé, any of the assets can be downloaded and used within schools for educational purposes.

There is also an education area which includes a whole host of ideas, lesson plans and useful resources for teachers and staff.

Please note, if you try to connect from a non emPSN connected machine, you will be taken to the public access area and be asked for your credit card details.



British Pathé Access

As part of the emPSN network, access to British Pathé is completely free to our schools. Access is granted via IP (Internet Protocol) address and if your school uses emPSN, your IP address will be automatically recognised by British Pathé.

Please note that British Pathé TV is a new service and requires a separate subscription, not included on the emPSN network. Please contact us if you would like to register your interest.
