Film and audio archives for education

I recently came across a couple of excellent repositories of audio and video material.

The first is Europa Film Treasures, a collection of mainly pre-WW2 cinema from across Europe

The link that led me to this showed the first film ever shot from an aircraft: Wilbur Wright and his Flying Machine (1909)- how this must have astonished the audiences in early cinemas and bioscope shows.

The second is the British Library’s archive of sound recordings, made available through JISC funding – over 28,000 recordings of everything from birdsong to traditional music from around the world to oral history.
