The Baim Collection owns and controls all of the copyright works of the late Harold Baim (b1914 Leeds - d1996 London).
Director, writer and prolific producer of 35mm 'quota-quickies' and 'short features' his early films featured variety acts; his later films were mainly colourful widescreen travelogues filmed in Great Britain, Ireland, Europe, the Middle East and Asia with commentaries by celebrated actors and broadcasters including Telly Savalas, Nicholas Parsons and Terry Wogan.
There are over one hundred and twenty short colour films originally made for cinema release in the UK and two feature films. Mostly in colour, over half the titles are available on BETA SP or DIGIBETA. DVD screeners are available to researchers and programme makers. HD copies can be made available from the 35mm negatives which are held in London. The majority of images have yet to be broadcast.
The Baim Collection offers researchers and programme makers a colourful window on the post-war period - especially the fifties and 'swinging-sixties'. The collection holds unique images of Britain and a broad selection of international films providing producers historians and documentary makers with affordable illustrative colour material.
The lists on these pages are primarily for use by producers, researchers and programme makers wishing to licence 'clips' or images for inclusion in new films, television programmes and web pages.
