Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre

CityArk MovieBase



The CityArk MovieBase comprises electronic copies of films mainly contained in our archival collections. The films vary in provenance from local government collections to the records of outside organisations and individuals whose records are on deposit with us in conformity with our collecting policy. Several films have been supplied by Tony Blake of Whitstable, Kent. We are indebted to Mr. Blake for allowing us to supplement our resource with films about Medway from his own collection (click here).

The manual records which constitute the bulk of the parent collections from which these films are taken are available for research in our public searchroom by appointment.

The electronic images contained in the MovieBase have been prepared for us by a private contractor by copying original cine film and video tapes directly onto CDRom. However, video tape copies of some of our films were obtained through the services of Screen Archive South East (formerly South East Film and Video Archive (SEFVA)), Brighton, who copied reel film and cine film onto video tape. These video tapes were then also copied by our contractor onto CDRom, from which we have uploaded electronic copies to the MovieBase.

To watch and listen to the movies your PC will need a suitable media player. For customers using MS Windows 2000, ME, 98SE, 98 we recommend MS MP v7.1; for customers using MS Windows XP you will require MS MPv10; or try RealOne for Windows


It should be noted the MovieBase comprises audio-visual highlights taken from archival collections constituted mainly by written records. The MovieBase is therefore not arranged in any archival order. Researchers who wish to understand the films in context are referred to the descriptive lists or accessions records for the relevant parent collections via the CityArk Explorer query tool drop down menu or manual finding aids in our public searchroom where staff can provide further guidance.

Caveat and disclaimer.

These film extracts are for viewing purposes only. Researchers  interested in obtaining extracts/copies should contact us at: films remain in copyright.
