In the year of one of the most unpredictable US presidential election in living memory, we look back to a memorable day in the 1970s when a brand new US President, Jimmy Carter, spent a day in the North East on his first overseas trip. The occasion was captured on film by television crews and amateurs alike, and is now preserved in the vaults of North East Film Archive.

These rare and unseen films show the men sending filmed messages home from India and Burma at the end of WW2. The films were screened at local cinemas in 1944-5 to wives, mothers and sweethearts back home as a way of increasing morale; a sort of one way Skype of their day, they are remarkable and moving documents.16 March, 2017
