Our job is to preserve and create access to our Archive collections so that you can explore and discover the fantastic range of footage just waiting to be revealed.

To do that, we offer a range of services, from commercial research, licencing and supply of content for production, through to public screening programmes with exhibitors, specialist in-house curation and editing for creative commissions, annual programmes of community film shows across both our regions, and expertise in working with wider professional partners to create bespoke packages to connect hard to reach audiences with our collections, including our award winning Memory Bank titles.

Whatever your interest, the best place to start is here on our website, where you can browse through the collections, or search against title, subject, place, date or decade. There are hundreds of hours of content to view free of charge, and thousands of catalogue records about material that is waiting to be digitised.


If you’re looking for great content, our team are here to work with you at every stage, from research, to screeners, to supply and licencing. Start by searching the site, drop us an email, then talk to us in more detail about your request – we have extensive knowledge of the collections and can help discover more content for you.
