Cinema newsreel: Gaumont Graphic, Gaumont British News and British Paramount News
Gaumont Graphic was a cinema newsreel launched in Britain in 1910 in silent form, available in silent and sound from the late 1920s. The silent newsreel ceased in 1934, giving way to the sound newsreel Gaumont British News, which continued until the end of January 1959.
British Paramount News began UK operations in 1931 and closed on 10 February 1957. Its release schedule was the same as Gaumont British and the other British cinema newsreels, with new issues twice a week.
