Extremely Cool Yeti & Cybermen Footage from the 1960’s!
British Pathé, the organization that filmed visual reports that were shown in the cinemas in the days before television and early days for television (at a time when lots of people did not have regular access to a tv set), have uploaded its collection of 85,000 films (spanning the years 1896 to 1976) on to youtube. There are a number of cool archive finds for Doctor Who (not missing episodes themselves unfortunately) including this one from 1968 that features a Cyberman and Yeti at the 1967/68 Schoolboys’ and Girls’ Exhibition at the Olympia. There is also some cool colour footage of Jon Pertwee with this then-wife Jean Marsh (which I did a post on this site a number of years ago). There is a lot of other cool footage not-related to Doctor Who amongst the 85,000 films that have been uploaded, but as this is a blog dedicated to Doctor Who, we trust you won’t mind if we just point out the Doctor Who stuff here.
