To mark the 60th anniversary of the death of King George VI, we've created a gallery featuring stills from a selection of original British Pathe newsreels. Celebrating our last King by seeing the films you would have seen had you been there [or maybe you were?]. Please login to leave comments below.
A man holds a copy of the Evening News announcing the death of King George VI, as seen in our momentous newsreel, "Britain Mourns", of 1952.
British Pathé were actually busy filming "Princess In Kenya" as part of Princess Elizabeth's Commonwealth tour when the King died. This film was never completed due to the sudden news of the King's death.
(If you enjoyed this gallery or have any thoughts on it that you'd like to share then please do leave a comment beneath the title slide)
