War Plans And Tea Mystery Complete Film Archive
The final touches have been made to an archive of films showing UK life in the 1930s and 1940s - including one showing the preparations for war.
The British Council's (BC) archive first went online in 2012, and the final 25 clips show scenes including England's pub culture, Sheffield's steel industry and Scotland Yard Flying Squad's search for stolen cases of tea.
All of the films were produced to show off the UK around the world during global conflict.
BC film director Briony Hanson said: "These films give us one last glimpse into a Britain that's different and familiar in equal measure.
"Some things like air raid shelters in London's parks and a Sheffield dominated by the steel industry are things of the past - but there are also trips to the pub, police dramas and, of course, a lot of tea."
The BC has also launched an international competition called View From Here to encourage people to look into national identity by re-editing the existing films or producing new ones on similar themes.
