The National Maritime Museum holds a fascinating collection of over 1500 documented films dating back to 1910. These provide a rich insight into Britain's relationship with the sea. There are also some unique views of coastal resorts and ports both at home and abroad at the start of the 20th century. The majority of our films are on 16mm format, some of which have been digitised to ProRes files.
