1927 - Imperial Britain.
Empire Britain

Look and gasp in awe at the breathtakingly, crisp colour footage of London ‘the center of the world’ and of the leading nation at It’s t̲i̲m̲e̲.

More Imperial, less corporate; one can’t help but put in to contrast the stark differences of here and now. The beauty of this place eludes us to the fact this was between world wars, and an impending depression.

shot by an early British pioneer of film named Claude Frisse-Greene, who made a series of travelogues using the colour process his father William - a noted cinematographer - was experimenting with.
It’s like a beautifully dusty old postcard you’d find in a junk store, but moving.

REMINDER THAT THE UK RULED ONE FIFTH OF THE WORLD, WE DON’T NEED TO WIN NO SINGING COMPETITION TO PROVE OURSELVES TO EUROPE

Great custom video.

Michael Jackson - They don’t care about us (Immortal version.)

WWII happened 74 years ago, watching this it is hard to imagine the simple fact that these atrocities actually happened, it is good to know the world has come so far in the little years that have past.

We still have a long way to go though, and despite what is happening in recent times international unity and integration is happening in our world.

Fantastic video, very powerful, it left me in awe.
