Newcastle on Film - now available on DVD!

There’s nowhere on earth quite like Newcastle, and just in time for Christmas, the North East Film Archive have produced an astonishing new DVD revealing ‘Newcastle on Film’ – the moving story of the city as captured on film over the past 100 years.

Presented and narrated by ITV Tyne Tees News presenter Pam Royle, Newcastle on Film is a tribute to life in this great Geordie capital. What is fascinating is that these are not feature films, they are simply films made by local people, professional and amateur filmmakers alike, who together with our regional television companies have created an extraordinary record of life in Tyneside over the decades: the people, places, major events and everyday working lives captured on film, and now revealed once again for everyone to see and enjoy.

From the excitement of Hoppings in the 1930s, to the resilience of the people of Newcastle during the Second World War, and the sheer grit and graft of great shipyard industry culminating in the excitement of the much-anticipated launches. Whether it’s nabbing a bargain at the Quayside market or ice cream treats on days out in Whitley Bay; the thousands of competitors taking part in the Great North Run or the highs – and lows – of Newcastle United, it’s all here in ‘Newcastle on Film’.

The DVD is priced at £12 (including postage and packing), and all profits from the sale go back into the work of the charity – so by popping a Newcastle on Film DVD in someone’s Christmas stocking, you are helping to support and save the film heritage of the North East of England!
