Rural Life on Map & Film

Over the last year I've lost more than a few hours browsing through the BFI's interactive map of Britain on Film. The map is an amazing way to step back in time by finding and watching vintage film footage of locations throughout the UK.

Britain on Film contains thousands of vintage films from all over the UK which you can search for by location and then watch for free. This collection of films has just got even larger as the BFI has now added over 750 films, dating from 1900 to 1999, exploring rural life in Britain.

You can search this new collection on the Britain on Film map by selecting the 'Rural Life' link in the map sidebar. All the vintage films from the collection will then be shown on the map by location. Select a marker on the map and you can view the chosen historical film.
