I was looking for some WW1 footage for a family history film I'm making. I found what I wanted on the Pathe site but couldn't see a way of downloading it - unless I was a museum or education establishment - so I emailed them to ask if I could buy just one clip. They replied (two weeks ago) saying that they were going to be re-vamping their site so allow the public to download footage within the next 7-8 weeks.
I was somewhat disheartened when I then got an email from one of their team asking for my input regarding what I would consider a good price per clip, their idea of a good price started at around £35 for personal, non-commercial use - which I thought was too expensive. I replied to that effect and pointed them in the direction of what the Imperial War Museum charges - they said they were thankful for my input...we'll see how thankful!
