Project Description

The British Tourist Authority—currently known as VisitBritain—has been producing documentary and promotional films since ~1930.

TIME/IMAGE undertook the extensive research and cataloguing of this fascinating and vast collection. Utilising external archives, original documentation, and more recent works we pieced together both individual records and the broader picture, producing a definitive and hitherto absent catalogue as well as an accompanying history.

Following our research we recommended new titles for digitisation, liaised with the BFI to digitise said titles, and provided short ‘clippings’ across the collection.

We also digitised all available production notes held by VisitBritain.
