Film archive British Pathé has released its entire collection to YouTube, making more than 85,000 rare 20th Century videos available to the public. History enthusiasts are now able to browse more than 3,500 hours of some of the most significant moments of the last century. Included in the vast release is unique footage of both World Wars, the Titantic, boxing legend Muhammed Ali and England’s glorious 1966 World Cup victory over Germany.
British Pathé says the films, which span from 1896 to 1976, cover every aspect of global culture and news. The archive’s general manager, Alastair White, told Sky News: “British Pathé is considered to be the finest news reel archive in the world. We decided to publish our entire archive to YouTube to ensure the maximum number of people can enjoy viewing British Pathé films.” The YouTube channel has been set up in collaboration with the German company Mediakraft Networks, an online television network.
Although the videos were previously available on the British Pathé website, it is the first time they have been made accessible for browsing and sharing. In a joint statement, British Pathé and Mediakraft said the project was set up to allow students, teachers and journalists to view, share and embed the high-resolution videos. It said the footage “paints vivid pictures of almost forgotten lifestyles, peculiar technical inventions and everyday life that British Pathé presented in newsreels, cinemagazines, and documentaries.” —British Pathé Publishes Archive On YouTube

“In School Daze’s first and most audacious production number, the dark-skinned women affiliated with Dap and his nationalists square off against Dean Big Brother Almighty’s girlfriend, Jane Toussaint (Tisha Campbell-Martin), and her light-skinned minions in the Gamma Rays, the Gammas’ female auxiliary. The ensuing production number, set at a hair salon, represents an academic treatise on the infinite permutations and complexities of black identity, re-imagined as a razzle-dazzle, Busby Berkeley-style musical number—albeit one with women calling each other “Jigaboos” and “Wannabes” in a song that grows more vicious with every verse. It’s a high-wire cultural mash-up between the art and culture of black rage and the overwhelmingly white world of classic musicals. It’s a production number so audacious and so recklessly, righteously brazen that it’s astonishing it made it into a studio movie in 1988.”
In this week’s Encore column, Nathan Rabin looks at Spike Lee’s follow-up to his breakout film, She’s Gotta Have It, a debut that indicated a career making sexy comedies. But with School Daze, Lee indicated he had a lot more on his mind. [Read more…]
Lorsque les premières révélations sur Prism, le programme de surveillance de la NSA, sont tombées, le gouvernement américain et les services de renseignement se sont retranchés derrière un terme peu connu du grand public : la métadonnée.Une métadonnée, c’est en quelque sorte une donnée sur une donnée.
