Bexley Local Studies & Archive Centre

The BLSAC houses a wide and varied film collection, currently consisting of around 160 films, that were made by both professional and amateur film makers. The oldest film in the collection was made by an early cinematographer, Harry Pease, in 1912, which features the opening ceremony of the Bexleyheath Clock Tower. The newest film is an animation made by Bexley school children on the life of Charlton Athletics' goalkeeping legend, Sam Bartram. The film collection covers all aspects of life in Bexley from official information films made during the Second World War to films on local politics, celebrations, school trips and family outings in and around Bexley and London.
