Region on film: thousands of pieces of archive footage go online

A collection of historic films captured on camera in the East can now be viewed by anyone.

Everything from newsreels, to family videos and public information films are being made available online as part of a major new project from the British Film Institute. It's called Britain on Film and spans a whole century.

It means you will be able to look up footage from anywhere in the country - whether it's where you live, grew up or perhaps where you have been on holiday.

They can all be viewed via the BFI Player.

That means there will be six 2015 fixtures at Great Yarmouth.
