The British Film Institute Mediatheque opened at Newcastle’s Discovery Museum this month offering visitors the chance to view more than 1,800 film and TV programs from the BFI’s National Archive, free of charge.

Mediatheque is a digital jukebox of content from the BFI’s collections where viewers can select their preferred choice of time and program to watch a pic in the museum.

The archive includes Brit classics such as “The Wicker Man,” “Monty Python” and “Brief Encounter.”

Around 85% of the content is unavailable to view anywhere else and new content is added frequently.

BFI Director Amanda Nevill said, “The public has a real appetite to see more and it is the job of the BFI to look after the national collection.”
