An avalanche of archival video from The AP / British Movietone

The Associated Press & British Movietone have released a treasure trove of archival video onto YouTube, including no end of seasonally themed clips. Here's but one...


The Joy Strings - the Salvation Army's Pop Group - mix a giant Christmas Pudding for the residents of their London Hostels. Up in Scotland, another ingredient of a Happy Christmas is being closely guarded at a distillery - by Geese! The new issue of Christmas Stamps features the works of Old Masters. While in Czechoslovakia, instead of Turkey or Xmas Pud, they prefer to see a nice tasty Carp as the centrepiece of Xmas.
