Festplatz, Tempelhof, Nr Berlin, Germany.

Large crowds arriving at what looks like a race course. Many carry banners. People carrying Swastika flags walk in. More people arrive, both in uniform and civvies. The crowd is of massive proportions.

Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany, stands on a podium and acknowledges the cheers of the crowd. Shots of the crowd - snow is falling heavily on the crowd - strangely it is not falling in the close up shots of Hitler. Shots of meeting place with flags flying. Shot of Hermann Goering with snow falling. CU Hitler speaking. Pan across crowd. Views of Hitler. Hitler finishes his speech with a flourish and a Nazi salute. The crowd sing 'Deutschland Uber Alles'. More views of the gathering

N.B. This print is very scratched in places. Also can anyone explain how the snow doesn't fall on Hitler when it is falling so heavily on the crowd.

Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news. British Pathé was at the forefront of cinematic journalism, blending information with entertainment to popular effect. Over the course of a century, it documented everything from major armed conflicts and seismic political crises to the curious hobbies and eccentric lives of ordinary people. If it happened, British Pathé filmed it.

Now considered to be the finest newsreel archive in the world, British Pathé is a treasure trove of 85,000 films unrivalled in their historical and cultural significance.
