1960s British Pathé News Music
« on: June 15, 2020, 02:23:52 AM »
My apologies if this has been asked before, but what music library did British Pathé use in the 1960s?  I am interested in what a few cues were that were used in a few of their Technicolor entries:
A few of the pieces I am interested in can be heard in
Motor Show in Earls Court (1962):

Slot Machines (1964)

1'33" in Slot Machine is 'Fish And Sticks', aka 'Driving Drums' by Eric Delaney from Chappell (and commercially released on Pye)

That was actually one of the pieces I was looking to ID.  Thanks!  :)
So I'm guessing Pathe used a lot of Chappell cues?

The last track in the "Motor Show" film is "Wrap Up" by Robert Sharples, from the Conroy label.

You know, the track in the "Motor Show" newsreel that starts at about 2:27 sounds like a Jack Shaindlin/Cinemusic track.
