Archive films for Christmas

these are too good to be put in our Christmas board. 

Take a nostalgic look at these wonderful festive films made in East Anglia and Upper Normandy, France, from 1930 to 1970 to get truly into the Christmas spirit.

Filmed in colour and black and white, the films are a selection box of real life Christmas stories drawn mostly from home movie collections preserved at the UEA’s East Anglian Film Archive (EAFA) and Rouen’s Pôle Image.

You can see how families celebrated Christmas throughout the years and also watch some special celebrations for disabled children and those unlucky enough to be in hospital over the holiday. And of course, Christmas shopping features in the films – it seems that buying underwear for their ladies has been a Christmas conundrum for men for many years!
