I don't know if anyone else watched the programme on BBC 2 last night about the Clitons. There was a bit about young Bill meeting JFK at the White House.

This is from a different programme, but is the same thing;

A bit grainy because of it's age, this is a very short piece of footage of naval combat during the Sino-Japanese War of 1894;



Except it isn't. Since the Lumiere brothers didn't show the first moving pictures until 1895, there is no way this can be footage of naval combat in 1894, it must be from a later conflict.

Footage of the Gordon Bennet rally held on the roads around Athy in 1903. To mark the race being run in Ireland, the British team drove cars painted emerald green, which in turn became the traditional racing colours of future British rally teams;

Awesome - but - well several buts come to mind. I know very little of this time but hadn't Rome already been 'knocked about a bit' by then? And weren't some bits already neglected by then? so when did the real destruction set in or was it gradual. What was estimated to be the population by then? And was there sufficient wealth about to sustain such grandeur?

Re the reconstruction of Rome ... that was very good, but, like Priscilla, I found it too "new" to be truly believable. The Colosseum for instance was then over 200 years old - that's older than say modern London's Albert Hall, which I admit still looks good, but only because at any one time about half of it is always covered by workers' scaffolding.

However for anyone that enjoys the books of Lindsey Davis, or Steven Saylor etc. (although both of these are set well before AD 320) it does bring it all to life. And it was very well done.

So thanks for that one Trike, regardless of my comments, I've watched it several times, and it does give you a sense of "being there"... though I still haven't actually been propositioned by an Avertine prostitute nor had my pocket picked by a Subaran cut-purse.

Priscilla and Meles, there probably were rundown areas and buildings, the compositors have shown the city at it's pristine best. The population of Rome, I believe, had reached the 1 million mark around 100 AD, no idea what it was 200 years later.

This is a 3D view of the Acropolis as it would have looked when new;

The M & K collection also contains this lovely streetscene from Manchester in 1901.



The Manchester Evening News tried to find the location based on where Moss & Sons might have once been and found that it is where Cross Street meets Corporation Street at the junction with Mary's Gate.

Mary's Gate entrance by the old Moss % Sons is now controlled by automated bollards, leading to this particular "home movie" from a hundred and ten years later at the same spot:



Sometimes one has to admit that times have not always changed for the better ... though sometimes for the funnier.

I think these old films are terrific. These two are the oldest, both shot on paper film by Louis Le Prince in Leeds in October 1888. The first is a scene in Roundhay Gardens and the second is traffic crossing Leeds bridge. The films themselves are only a few frames long and are repeated to fill out the length of the video, which is the length of the music recording. The background music was made on the 29th June 1888 by George E Gouraud, representative of the Edison Company, at Crystal Palace of Handel's "Israel in Egypt";

This next film might be of interest on your European history boards. It was thought to have been lost until a nitrate copy surfaced in 2005. It is a German wartime propaganda film "Battle for Norway" [ in German with English subtitles]

Triceratops,

thank you very much for this Narvik you tube. I will certainly use it on a French messageboard, as the French "Narvik" soldiers were among the first few to follow de Gaulle in London. First de Gaulle had only a mere thousand adherents.

And it is also a link with my file on the History of History. Even a propaganda film adds to the broader picture of an event. As by comparing several different sources one can find some common denominator that has to be tested to the intellectual logical and honest (not biassed) reasoning. A bit as Nordmann said in one of his last messages in that thread.

Kind regards and with esteem,

Paul.

Here is something a bit different. It is the BBC film "Culloden" by Peter Watkins from 1964 in a (then) new docu-drama style;



Watkins went on to make "The War Game" in a similar style, only it was a bit too realistic and was banned.
