    I wanted to use this 40 second film clip and another 20 second one as part of a talk to local clubs and societies on the Kiwis in Torquay 1917-19. I was quoted £239 to licence EACH clip for this purpose. I feel that this is absolutely extortionate, and rules out their use for this purpose. I think that Pathe need to look at their charging policy with community use and length of clip in mind.
