BFI Film Channel on YouTube

An item on R4's Front Row last week alerted me to the fact that the British Film Institute - with its tremendous National Film Archive - now has a YouTube Channel. The range and number of films to view available to view is set to grow steadily. Of local interest, this short bucolic extract from Claude Friese-Greene's The Open Road filmed in Much Marcle, Herefordshire in 1926 using his experimental colour process.

It's possible to view a even larger selection of films from the National Film Achive free at the Mediatheque at BFI Southbank and from October at the new QUAD Centre in Derby.
