A new addition to the Wellcome Film project has been made: downloadable videos to keep, edit and watch as you wish from your own computer. The videos are H.264 (MPEG4) format and broadband resolution (2Mbps), easily playable by both Mac and PC users. To download, simply find the title you want in the catalogue searching the Wellcome Film homepage, and click on the ‘Download entire title’ link in the catalogue record.
All videos on the Wellcome Film website are made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commerial 2.0 UK licence, so go ahead and edit away! If you do use any of our videos in one of your projects, please let us know by leaving a comment on our blog or on our YouTube channel – we’d love to see them!
In other Wellcome Film news, our YouTube channel was featured on Wired’s website bringing a new audience to these medical films. The most popular video as a result of this is now Prefrontal Tuberculoma, a 1933 surgical film showing the removal of a brain tumour caused by tuberculosis (not for the faint of heart – see below).
