The East Anglian Film Archive
The film clip on this page has been provided by the East Anglian Film Archive as part of their Archive Flicks in the Stix project.
The East Anglian Film Archive, the first Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976 as an educational resource for the future.
Since 1984 the Archive has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), as a not for profit research and public access resource.
The East Anglian Film Archive’s collections comprise thousands of hours of moving image material on different formats. The film and video collections – made, since 1896, primarily in the six counties of the East of England – are mainly of non-fiction material such as advertising films, corporate videos, documentaries, family and personal films, home movies, local newsreels and television news, publicity films, educational material, travelogues, and films by civic bodies and regional organisations.
