HOW TO UPLOAD MOVIES
You can now upload your videos of the past to the BBC's modern history group on YouTube. This could be a home video of the 70s or an interview today of someone talking about the past.
How to upload to the BBC's modern history YouTube group:
You'll need a YouTube account. If you've not got one, go here and sign up.
Your videos need to be on YouTube before you can send them to us. So if they're not already, go to this page and follow the instructions.
You need to join our YouTube group, so go here and hit "join this group" on the top right.
Now it's time to send us your videos. There's more than one way, but the easiest is to hit the "add to groups" button shown under each YouTube video, select "BBC History of Modern Britain", and hit "add to group".
When we approve the videos, they'll appear on this page. So get uploading!
How to convert cine film/VHS to digital:
If you have any old home movies on cine film, the quickest way to convert them to a digital format would be to project the films on to a blank white wall or screen and record the output on video.
Fill as much of the frame as possible.
Make sure the video camera is still - don't hand-hold it.
Alternatively, you can take your cine film into a photographic specialist in your High Street and pay for it to be converted. Some websites also do the same
If you have VHS you may be able to transfer the film straight into your computer, or specialists can put it on to DVD first.
