Season's Greetings

Christmas 1954 and 1958

1954-1958 | Film No. 12180

2014 has been another busy year for the North East Film Archive. We launched our new website and have added over 70 films, from 1950s shopping in Time for Leisure to fun Christmas comedy sketches by the sales staff at McAdam's department store in the 1930s. Look out for 100 new titles in 2015, digitized as part of Unlocking Film Heritage, a partnership with the BFI.

But for now, we hope you enjoy this 1950s Christmas gem from the vaults. Very Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year!
