On this YouTube channel, viewers will find films, videos, and audio materials from the Wellcome Library's Moving Image and Sound Collection. These health and welfare relating videos include a variety of educational films, news releases, and television announcements from throughout the twentieth century. Many of these films were produced by hospitals and public health organizations (such as the British Medical Association) with the intention of spreading information about public health issues and personal health care to medical students as well as members of the general public. This collection is perhaps best browsed via the Playlists, which include A Century of Health on Film, Anaesthesia, First Aid, and Public Health Propaganda By Bermondsey Borough Council. (The Bermondsey Borough Council produced a number of propaganda films between 1925 and 1937 with titles including "Health and Clothing" and "Where There's Life There's Soap.") This collection reveals a great deal about the evolving history of medical practices, medical discoveries, and popular attitudes towards health in Great Britain.
