Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

BFI offers ‘Britain on Film’ archive for free

Film strip

Archive material, newly released for public viewing, shows life in Scotland in the days when black and white film was the norm, and colour was rare..

The British Film Institute’s Britain on Film project includes films and news reels which have been digitised and are now available to watch free online on the BFI player.

Worth noting that if you have a specific area of the country where you’d like to know if there any films to be had, you can find them shown on a map, which also shows how many, and lets you see what they are. You can also search by location, decade, and topic.

According to Culture24, by 2017 10,000 film and TV titles dating back as far as 1895 will have been digitised.
