April 1939 Gaumont British News.
It’s the eve of World War II and in this intriguing newsreel there’s evidence of a nation readying itself for conflict. Alongside scenes from the inauguration of cinemas of Royal Navy Vessels (here HMS Ark Royal), we have a civil defence parade in Hyde Park, and a volunteer peacetime army preparing for duty. There’s also great footage of a nation enjoying Easter, and from the States, marvel as the ‘bat man’ ties to fly under his own steam in Washington.
Please pick up your FREE tickets for the newsreel screening from our Box Office.
