Why Create The Local History Videos Website?

Vintage film and old photos are a great way to bring local history to life. Everything from old photograph montages, cinema newsreels, TV programmes, and home videos have been uploaded to the internet. They can both fascinate and bring back happy memories. But much of this footage remains hidden from popular view because of the sheer quantity of content online today.

And then, of course, the algorithms often struggle to understand what you’re really looking for. Did you mean Bedford town or Bedford trucks? Birmingham in the West Midlands or Birmingham in Alabama? A film made in Liverpool in the past – or a film talking about Liverpool in the past?

It takes hours to sort through the jumble of suggestions to find a collection of gems. So this site curates a collection of videos that exist about your local area.
