Footage now available on VisitBritain Images - 15/06/2013

VisitBritain is proud to own archive footage of the Travel and Industrial Development Association (TIDA) - a collection of informative and entertaining documentary tourism films of Britain produced by Marion Grierson, some silent and some with sound.

Following the war, the British Travel Association was formed and tourism films were commissioned to help the promotion of Britain worldwide.

The collection is a fascinating view of Britain over the last 90 years and VisitBritain have made an initial collection of over 2,000 clips available online. Contemporary footage highlighting Britain is also available online.

Simply tick the footage under the search box!

Changes to Press and Media access - 09/01/2013

Since the re-launch of VisitBritain Images in November 2012 we have looked at how we can improve press and media access.

Once registered and logged in, the easiest way to access and download images available to press and media is via the searchable galleries or via the gallery links on the dedicated landing page accessed via the homepage or 'Quick Links' tab on the menu bar.

Changes have been made to enable users to search the 3,500 images available to download free of charge only via the main search box on the top right hand corner of the site. All results that are returned will be available to download.

If you cannot find what you are looking for please take a look at VisitBritain's media centre where there are further images available to accompany tourism related stories and features.

Alternatively, if you would like to use images from VisitBritain's wider collection these may be purchased from www.britainonview.com.

If you have any questions relating to these changes please contact the Support team.
