A look back... thanks to the BBC! A must see.
I find these clips that I watched really interesting. What do you think?
The Browns go to Nazi Germany (1937)
No sound but it's a colour look at nazi germany, pre-war. I found eerie, that such vivid pictures of Germany existed. Not propaganda, just a home movie.
Jewish Community Parade (1937, England)
In the former clip you seen the "Juden" with the "ugly yid". Here you see the opposite proud Jews who seemingly fought for Britian in WWI. Is it not eerie?
Yemeni riots (1930, England)
Interesting, first time I ever even heard of a sizable Arab community in England prior to WWII. I found the muslim procession rather interesting, and the liberal way English women married Arab men at the time. But I wasn't shocked at the racial conflict within the town about the loss of jobs to the arabs.
These next two are comical
I found is gaye... need I say more? Some geeky teen going out. (1971)
In these clips I cannot believe that Royality had to open up a Mall!
Opening up a mall... oh my.
Let's take a tour of... the mall...
This is just a short sample.. I may add more later on. I just hope you enjoy like a did. It's a interesting look back at history (well at least British)
