A Year to Remember: 1988 (DVD)
Stunning documentary footage from a key point in history from the world-famous British Pathe film archive
This hour-long documentary looks at events in the extraordinary year of 1988.
A Year to Remember draws together contemporary news footage compiled from the British Pathe archive to chronicle the definitive events that occurred during the 20th century.
Pathe News set the industry standard for cinematic journalism, keeping audiences informed and entertained for the better part of a century with their newsreels. Their film reels not only documented the major political issues of the day, but social changes and cultural trends showing the way ordinary people lived their lives at the time.
