Australasian Gazette Newsreels
The Australasian Gazette newsreels held at the National Film and Sound Archive span over three decades and capture a diverse range of subjects including political and national events, sport and entertainment.
Newsreels were an integral part of cinema programming in Australia before the advent of television in 1956. Issued on a weekly basis, the newsreels enabled people to further engage with local and national political stories and events. Australasian Gazette newsreels started in 1913 when The Greater JD Williams Amusement Company amalgamated with General Film Company, the same partnership that later formed Greater Union Theatres.
